Cornea Conditions

The cornea is the outer transparent layer forming the front of your eye. It’s an organized group of proteins and cells that help protect and shield the rest of your eye from harmful material while simultaneously acting as your outer lens. Though resilient, your cornea is not impervious to various diseases and conditions that, if left untreated, can cause further problems later.

Cornea Problems?

Dry and Red Eyes

If you have been dealing with dry, burning red eyes, you are not alone. This condition is one of the top reasons that patients seek the expertise of an eye doctor. When eyes are no longer responsive to artificial tears, or if they are excessively dry, itchy or burning, then there might be an underlying issue that an eye specialist should investigate.

Dry Eyes?
