The cornea is the clear tissue located at the front of the eye that allows light in. Anything that compromises the integrity of this structure can cause severe vision loss and potentially pain since there are so many nerves located here.
Conditions such as dry eyes, scarring, poor surgical outcomes from LASIK or RK (radial keratotomy), keratoconus (which is a hereditary malformation of the cornea), injuries, etc., can be very detrimental to a patient. At Kendall Optical Center, we have many therapies we employ for treatment. We also fit a large variety of specialty contact lenses that often times surgery cannot address.
So if you have experienced any corneal problems or dry eyes, see us so we can work together towards a solution.
