The cornea is the transparent window on the front of the eye covering the iris and pupil that helps focus light on the retina. Damage to the cornea can result from severe dry eye, trauma, infection, chronic inflammation, and inherited conditions, such as corneal dystrophies. Joel Geffin, M.D. is a Board-certified ophthalmologist and The Eye Care Group’s fellowship-trained cornea and refractive surgery specialist.
