The cornea is the eye’s outermost layer. Unlike most tissues in the body, the cornea contains no blood vessels to nourish or protect it against infection.
Best Cornea Specialist in Delhi
The cornea is the outermost layer of the eye and is the clear tissue that covers the colored iris and pupil. Its role is to focus light through its high powered refractive surface and protect the inner-workings of the eye. It contains no blood to protect it against infection. If it is injured or affected by disease, it may become swollen or scarred, and its smoothness and clarity may be lost. Scars, swelling or an irregular shape can cause the cornea to scatter or distort light, resulting in glare, blurry vision, or even pain.
Cornea Diseases and Disorder
There are many conditions that can affect the clarity of the cornea. For instance, injury to the cornea can cause scarring as can infections (especially herpes keratitis and conjunctivitis). Shingles of the head and neck often travels to the eye, affecting the cornea. A hereditary condition called Fuchs’ Dystrophy causes corneal failure and Keratoconus causes a steep curving of the cornea. Pterygiums sometimes impair vision and need to be removed. Dry Eye Disease is a common corneal condition that we treat every day. And sometimes corneal failure can also occur after an eye surgery. These are a few of the most common corneal conditions that we treat here at IClinix Advance Eye Care. Some of the treatment options include corneal transplants, treatments with amniotic membrane tissues, drops, and even contact lenses.
