The cornea is the clear part of the eye that covers the iris and pupil. Different injuries, infections, or diseases can lead to clouding, scarring, or other damage to the cornea that may result in decreased vision. We offer the best possible care for patients with cornea problems. Depending on the issue, our doctors may be able to improve vision and corneal health with non-surgical options such as specialty contact lenses or amniotic membrane grafts like PROKERA. If surgery is necessary, Dr. Harjit Athwal is a fellowship trained cornea specialist who performs full thickness (PKP) or partial thickness (DSEK) corneal transplants which can treat or cure many different corneal diseases.
