Cornea specialists at the Emory Eye Center utilize the latest techniques and advances in the field to treat simple and advanced problems caused by disease, genetic predisposition, injury or aging to the structures in the front regions of the eye. These include cataracts (when the natural lens inside the eye becomes cloudy and blurs vision), keratoconus, corneal abrasions, other conditions that affect the outer layers of the eye, and refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

Our cornea specialists offer the widest possible range of treatment options for each patient’s unique conditions. When surgery is indicated, the most commonly performed procedures include cataract and refractive surgery, and corneal transplantation.
