Corneal Infection Treatments
Treatment of Corneal Infections
The cornea is a thin, clear, spherical layer of tissue on the surface of the eye that provides a window for light to pass through. In a healthy eye, the cornea bends or refracts light rays so they focus precisely on the retina in the back of the eye.
There are many diseases that can affect the cornea, causing pain or loss of vision. Disease, infection or injury can cause the cornea to swell (called "edema") or degrade (become cloudy and reduce vision).
Miramar Eye Specialists Medical Group are the first in Los Angeles area to have the Alcon “Heads-Up” system for retina-vitreous eye surgeries. Read about it in Ventura County Star.
