The cornea is the clear, protective outer layer of your eye that protects it from dirt, bacteria, and other potentially harmful substances. In addition, it refracts light passing through the eye in order to allow your vision to focus clearly. As such, it is an incredibly important part of your eye that should be treated immediately if it becomes damaged or diseased. Fortunately, the talented team at Rothchild Eye Institute is highly experienced in treating pterygium and other corneal health issues through the use of advanced procedures, such as AmbioDisk® and PROKERA®.
