To all our valued patients,
Due to the COVID-19 virus, we want to assure our patients that recommended disinfecting techniques and social distancing measures are in effect. All patients are required to wear facial covering over nose and mouth. Please limit those entering the office to the patient only and any required assistance. If you have a cough, fever or are not feeling well, please reschedule. Contact lens wearers are able to call in their orders or order online. We thank you for your patience in this matter and wish everyone the best.

The cornea is the clear, dome-shaped outer layer of your eye. It is comprised of five layers. Each is responsible for a separate function. This collection of cells, fluids and proteins must remain clear and undisturbed in order for you to see well, and to shield your eyes from dust and germs. The cornea protects your lens and iris, and is responsible for about 70 percent of the eye’s focusing power.
Unfortunately, the cornea is susceptible to a range of disorders, which are collectively referred to as corneal disorders. The following are some common corneal disorders that can affect this sensitive and important part of the eye.
Corneal disorders can be frightening, but researchers have developed many treatments. If you have any symptoms of corneal disorders, call us today so we can discuss your treatment options.
