The cornea is the clear, protective outer layer of the eye that plays a key role in vision by refracting light as it enters the eye. The curvature of the cornea helps determine how well your eye can focus on objects that are near or far.
Vision can be distorted if the cornea becomes damaged from disease, infection or injury. Read more about Cornea Treatment.
