The cornea is a clear protective outer layer of the eye that transmits and focuses light into the eye, which is crucial to clear vision. Infection, disease, injury, or scarring of this tissue can distort or block light as it passes through the cornea and enters the eye.

More than 18,000 people seek eye care at Mount Sinai each year. Our eye care professionals are dedicated to providing you with the finest treatment available today.
