What is exactly is your cornea?

Have you ever heard the term “cornea” and weren’t sure what it meant? The cornea is the clear tissue on the very front of your eye. Contact lenses are placed directly onto the cornea. Over-wearing contact lenses can cause changes to the cornea. Some changes such as new blood vessels, scarring, and infections can be seen during routine examination. Some changes occur on the cellular level and can only be seen with a specular microscope. Having annual eye exams ensures that your corneas stay healthy.
