What Is the Cornea?

The cornea sits at the front of the iris and pupil and is a vital component of the eye, refracting light onto the retina. A healthy cornea is clear and rounded; however, if it becomes diseased, it can become distorted. This may lead to vision issues. At Sedalia Eye Associates, our team helps patients understand the importance of their eye health and can address corneal issues. If you've noticed vision abnormalities or if you haven't had an eye exam recently, we encourage you to contact our Sedalia or Warsaw, MO office to schedule an appointment.

How Are Corneal Diseases Treated?

Diseases of the cornea can be treated in a variety of ways. The specific treatment method will depend on each individual's case. Some common treatments include:

  • Medication: Prescription eye drops or ointments containing antibiotics, antivirals, or anti-inflammatory drugs
  • Corneal transplant: A surgical procedure that replaces the damaged cornea with a healthy one
  • Corneal cross-linking: Treats progressive keratoconus
  • Laser surgery (PRK or LASIK): Reshapes the cornea to correct issues like nearsightedness and farsightedness

Schedule Your Visit

Routine eye exams can help ensure that your eyes are in proper health and catch any issues (such as corneal damage or disease) early on. The earlier an issue is detected, typically the more treatment options you have. Stay on top of your eye health with Sedalia Eye Associates.
