Cornea & External Disease

Cornea and external disease/refractive surgery specialists at CEI provide advanced medical and surgical management of all conditions and disorders of the cornea, the transparent layer of tissue that covers the front of the eye. The cornea refracts light rays as they enter the eye onto the retina, allowing us to see clearly.

CEI doctors are available for consultation in the following areas: laser vision correction surgery; corneal transplantation; corneal dystrophy, in which the eye gradually loses endothelial cells; keratoconus, a thinning disorder of the cornea that causes distortion and reduced vision; "dry eye" syndrome; Fuchs Dystrophy; and stem cell research.
