As the transparent and domelike front part of your eye, the cornea covers the center portion of the eye, including the iris and the pupil. A healthy, intact cornea focuses entering light onto the lens while filtering out some of the most damaging wavelengths of sunlight. It also assists in shielding the eye from germs, dust, and other harmful matter.
When the cornea gets injured or affected by infections, diseases, or other disorders, you may experience varying degrees of discomfort, clouding, distortion, opaquing, scarring, and vision loss.
