The cornea is the eye's outermost layer. It is the clear, dome-shaped surface that covers the front of the eye and plays an important part in the eye's visual acuity. Cornea surgery at Garland Eye Associates is dedicated to the health and functioning of the cornea, by providing excellence in patient care, scientific advancement and specialty training.
