Cornea

Ocala Eye has the only private practice cornea service in Marion County. Our practice features the latest technology available to provide the most comprehensive, complete diagnostic testing for corneal abnormalities and diseases. Our fellowship-trained cornea specialists, Peter J. Polack, M.D., F.A.C.S, and Hussain Elhalis, M.D., can determine the cause and specify treatments for diseases affecting the cornea. If necessary, advanced corneal transplant techniques such as DSAEK/DMEK can be used to restore lost vision.

What is the Cornea?

The cornea is the eye’s outermost layer. It is the clear, dome-shaped surface that covers the front of the eye and it helps direct light rays towards the lens for focusing. Unlike most tissues in the body, the cornea contains no blood vessels to nourish or protect it against infection. The cornea must remain transparent to see well, and the presence of even the tiniest abnormal blood vessels can affect vision.
