About The Cornea

The cornea is the clear outer tissue that covers the front-facing part of the eye. This structure serves many purposes, like guarding the eye against germs, dirt, and dust, and bending light so that it hits the retina precisely. Healthy corneas are usually dome-shaped without being too round or oblong. The overall shape and condition of the cornea have a profound impact on a person's vision so it's important to have your eyes checked if you notice any abnormalities that could indicate corneal injury or disease. At Focal Point Vision in San Antonio, TX, our board-certified ophthalmologists offer a range of solutions for individuals with certain corneal defects.
