CORNEA DISEASES

Your cornea is the clear, outermost part of your eye. It protects your eye from dirt, bacteria, germs, and anything else that could harm the delicate inner workings of your eye.

Your cornea also helps filter out some of the UV light from the sun that can cause damage. Besides just acting as a protective layer, the cornea is the part of the eye that refracts, or bends, light in order to focus. The shape of the cornea affects how the light is bent, and this process is what allows the brain to see. If the cornea is irregularly shaped, or damaged, the light doesn’t refract correctly and your vision is affected. This is why it is so important to us at Cornea Consultants of Albany that we keep your cornea protected. Your cornea can heal itself from minor damage like a scratch in as little as 48 hours, but for more serious damage or disease it is important that you receive proper medical care from our doctors. If you feel any pain, blurred vision, extreme sensitivity to light, tearing, or redness, you should come in to Cornea Consultants of Albany immediately for an appointment with one of our board-certified ophthalmologists.
