The cornea is a transparent dome of tissue that covers the iris in the front of the eye. It is an amazing structure that focuses images to the retina in the back of the eye providing clear vision. In fact, the cornea provides the majority of the focusing power of the eye. Without a clear or intact cornea, vision would be obscured and images would not be focused appropriately to allow for crisp vision. There are numerous diseases that can affect the cornea and thus interfere with a person’s vision. This can range from conditions such as dry eye syndrome, to genetic diseases, to infections, or traumatic injuries.
