The cornea is the clear, dome-shaped outer layer of your eye. It is comprised of five layers. Each is responsible for a separate function. This collection of cells, fluids and proteins must remain clear and undisturbed in order for you to see well, and to shield your eyes from dust and germs. The cornea protects your lens and iris, and is responsible for about 70 percent of the eye’s focusing power.

Unfortunately, the cornea is susceptible to a range of disorders, which are collectively referred to as corneal disorders. The following are some common corneal disorders that can affect this sensitive and important part of the eye.

Corneal disorders can be frightening, but researchers have developed many treatments. If you have any symptoms of corneal disorders, call us today so we can discuss your treatment options.

Testimonial

  • ""I am not sure if it is possible to put into words how wonderful Advanced Eye Care is. I have rather significant eye issues that required frequent visits, frequent changes, and frequent frustration. Everyone at Advanced Eye Care went above and beyond standard patient care to make me feel comfortable, understood, and ease the frustration associated with my keratoconus. I would recommend any one of the eye doctors here to take care of any of my friends, family, or co-workers. My vision would not be where it is today without the care they provided and continue to give"."

  • ""My wife and I have been patients at Advanced Eye Care with Dr. Roddy for over twenty-five years. Due to some unusual eye issues we have had to depend upon her expertise beyond normal eye exams and prescriptions for glasses. She has always been knowledgeable and has skillfully helped us to resolve the issues. Over the years we have interacted with many of the staff and they have always been courteous, professional and helpful. I can unconditionally recommend Advanced Eye Care as a wonderful place to have vision needs met"."
