Overview

The Cornea is like the windshield of a car.  It is a clear round dome covering the iris and the pupil, protecting the internal structures from damage.  The cornea plays an important role in vision by helping to focus light as it enters the eye.

The cornea is especially susceptible to injury.  Foreign objects, abrasions, sports injuries, and chemical burns can all lead to serious harm and even blindness.  Genetic or degenerative disorders can also affect the cornea.  Proper and timely care of an injured cornea is critical to insure the best outcome.


As cornea specialists in DFW, Dallas-Fort Worth, Dr. Koreishi and Dr. Ple-plakon strive to provide the best cornea care, availability, and patient education.
