Cornea

At Horizon Eye Care, our well-trained and highly experienced cornea specialists provide advanced medical and surgical management of all conditions and disorders of the cornea, the transparent layer of tissue that covers the front of the eye.

The cornea and tear film work together to refract light rays as they enter the eye onto the retina, allowing us to see clearly. Many common conditions affect the cornea and tear film including corneal infections, keratoconus, Fuchs’ dystrophy, dry eye syndrome, allergic eye disease and pterygium. All of these conditions may affect your vision and comfort of the eye and if so require treatment either with drops or possibly surgical intervention. Our fellowship-trained cornea doctors at Horizon, specialize in the diagnosing of these conditions as well as providing the most up-to-date and clinically proven medical or surgical treatments available.

Our world-class corneal specialists provide this outstanding care at most of our locations throughout the Charlotte and surrounding areas. Our doctors take great pride in connecting with their patients while providing competent and compassionate care. We are eager to meet with you, exam your eyes, utilize our specialized cornea testing equipment to aid our diagnosis, discuss in detail your disease and its prognosis, and establish the best course of action needed to improve your vision and relieve your discomfort.

Horizon Eye Care preforms a number of corneal surgical procedures including advanced techniques of corneal transplant, DSEK, and lamellar keratoplasty. Below are some resources to help assist you.
