As a cornea specialist, Dr. Ngakeng cares for diseases corneal injuries.
The cornea is the eye’s outermost layer. It is the clear, dome-shaped surface that covers the front of the eye. Because the cornea is smooth and clear (like glass), and is strong and durable, it helps the eye in two ways.
- First, it shields the rest of the eye from germs, dust, and other harmful matter. Of course, this protective task is shared with the eyelids, the eye socket, tears, and the white part of the eye or sclera.
- Second, the cornea acts as the eye’s outermost lens that controls and focuses the entry of light into the eye. The cornea contributes between 65-75 percent of the eye’s total focusing power.
