Corneal Care Center

What is the Cornea?

The cornea is the clear, dome-shaped, outermost layer of the eye. It serves as a barrier against germs and dust, and also plays an essential role in our vision and ability to focus. If the cornea is damaged or diseased the vision can be affected. Corneal disease can range from the simple to the complex. In the event that you have a complex problem requiring advanced medical or surgical care we are fortunate to have on staff a fellowship trained corneal specialist, Dr. J. Alberto Martinez, who treats corneal disorders.
