What Is The Cornea?

The cornea is the clear, outer barrier that protects the eye against dirt, germs, and other particles that can harm its delicate components. It also helps filter out ultraviolet light, and bends light so the eye can focus on objects near and far. Talk to Chu Vision about your options for corneal surgery to protect your sight from corneal disease.
