The cornea is the clear, outer layer on the front of the eye that functions in a number of ways to help provide clear, crisp vision. The cornea refracts or bends light rays to focus it on the retina in the back of the eye. In fact, the cornea contributes 65-75% of the eye's total focusing power.
It is important for the cornea to maintain transparency and optical clarity as well as normal curvature and thickness. There are many conditions and diseases that can affect the cornea. Infections, dry eyes, inflammation, ocular herpes, ocular shingles, poor contact lens hygiene, trauma, and genetic corneal dystrophies can all lead to the cornea becoming scarred or misshapen.
