The cornea is the clear tissue at the front of the eye. It allows the transmission of light to the retina. The cornea is among the most densely innervated tissues of the body. This becomes important especially when considering conditions such as corneal abrasions, and refractive surgery such as PRK and LASIK, which are discussed further below. Other important conditions affecting the cornea include dry eye syndrome, blepharitis, keratoconus, and Fuchs dystrophy.
At Freehold Ophthalmology, we provide the people in Freehold, Toms River, and Brick, New Jersey areas with comprehensive treatment and preventative services for a wide range of corneal conditions.
