The cornea is the clear outer layer at the front of your eye. It helps your eye focus light so that you can see clearly. Corneal disease can severely affect your vision if not treated promptly and effectively. Duke corneal specialists throughout the Triangle provide treatment for a variety of corneal diseases. Some of these include corneal dystrophies such as Fuchs’ dystrophy; corneal inflammation, scarring, and ulcers; dry eye; and keratoconus. If your condition has progressed and you need corneal transplant surgery to help restore you vision, we offer the most advanced surgical techniques that replace the affected layer of the cornea -- maximizing your vision and minimizing risks and recovery time.
