Outstanding Care for Cornea Conditions

The cornea specialists at CODET Vision Institute provide comprehensive eye care and the most common vision correction procedures for a range of routine, complex, and high-risk corneal and external diseases and conditions.

We develop personalized treatment plans to achieve the best outcomes for each individual based on their specific condition and needs.

Why is a Healthy Cornea Important?


The cornea is the eye’s outermost layer and plays an important role in our ability to see clearly. The primary function of the cornea is to allow light to pass into the eye so that it can reach the lens and then the retina. For effective sight, the cornea must be transparent. It must also bend the rays of light entering our eye to allow the eye to focus clearly. Changes in either the transparency or shape of the cornea can severely impair vision. Disorders that affect the cornea often cause severe vision loss.

What is a Corneal Disease?

Corneal disease is a serious condition that can cause clouding, distortion, scarring, and eventually blindness. There are many types of corneal diseases.
