cornea

The cornea is essential to vision. It retracts and focuses light entry, acts as a filter screening out damaging ultraviolet rays, and helps shield the rest of the eye from harmful matter. Because the cornea has many functions, corneal disease, injury, and genetic or physiological problems can cause many eyesight problems.

Moran Eye Center cornea specialists provide the most advanced medical and surgical treatment options for disorders of the cornea, conjunctiva, iris, and lens, as well as complications from cataract surgery.
