Cornea Services

The cornea is the clear front part of the eye that helps to focus light. It covers the iris and pupil, and is composed of five layers: the epithelium, Bowman’s layer, stroma, Descemet’s membrane, and endothelium. The cornea is very important for vision, as it helps to bend light so that it can be focused on the retina. If the cornea is damaged, vision may be impaired. Corneal transplants are sometimes necessary to restore vision.

The cornea is the transparent, clear front part of the eye that covers the iris, pupil and anterior chamber.


Retinal detachment is a separation of the light-sensitive membrane in the back of the eye (the retina) from its supporting layers.


Keratoconus means cone-shaped cornea. The cornea is involved in focusing images on the retina, which helps us see clearly.

Dry eye syndrome is a condition that affects millions of people around the world, especially in dryer environments like Colorado.


DSEK stands for Descemet’s Stripping Endothelial Keratoplasty. This is a type of corneal transplant where only the back layer of the cornea, the endothelium, is transplanted.
