Cornea Center

The cornea is the transparent layer of your eye that covers the iris and pupil and admits light to the interior. Like the crystal of a watch, the cornea is strong enough to protect the inside of the eye from injury, yet transparent enough to let light pass through.

Corneal problems can happen to anyone at any age due to disease, injury or infection.

A damaged cornea distorts light as it travels into the eye affecting your vision and may even cause pain. Unlike other parts of the body, once the cornea has been damaged, it does not heal itself completely. Dr. Amanda Matthews is well trained in caring for a variety of issues related to cornea disease including Fuchs Dystrophy.
