Cornea

The cornea is a clear tissue that covers the front part of the eye and provides its structural support. It has a high concentration of water and is responsible for providing transparency to the eye. The cornea has three distinct layers: an outer layer of epithelium, a middle stroma layer, and an inner layer of endothelium. The cornea is also responsible for refracting light as it passes through the lens and into the vitreous humor. Cornea provides about two thirds of the refractive power of the eye.

  • Anterior segment OCT

  • Orbscan (Corneal Topography) - It is an ultimate diagnostic tool for corneal thickness and to diagnose keratoconus. A sensitive camera system is used in this machine to scan cornea.
