What is the Cornea?
The cornea is the transparent window into the eye, it covers the pupil, the iris, and the anterior chamber. The cornea accounts for just about two thirds of the eyes total optical power. Along with the lens, the cornea works to refract light on to the retina. If the cornea is abnormal or clouded in anyway, vision can be severely affected. There are a number of different ailments that can cause cornea problems. Ask your Newsom Eye doctor how you can keep your corneas clear and healthy.

Refractive Surgery & Blurry Vision
Refractive eye surgery was created to help improve the natural refractive properties of the eye thereby helping to eliminate the need for glasses and contact lenses. The most common form of refractive surgery utilizes a excimer laser to reshape the curvature of the cornea. This same technology has been effective in the treatment of cataracts as well as such ailments as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.
