The Cornea and External Disease Service of Wills Eye treats patients with disorders of the cornea and outer coats of the eye, including the conjunctiva and sclera. Conditions affecting these parts of the eye can cause redness, pain and decreased vision. We are also involved in the latest refractive surgery procedures to treat nearsightedness, astigmatism and farsightedness.
Patients with corneal or external ocular disease problems are examined at the Cornea Service by a full-time staff that includes attending surgeons, fellows and residents. Each patient is carefully examined by two or more physicians and then given an individualized treatment plan, based on the latest and best therapies.
The Cornea and External Disease Service is dedicated to improving vision, preventing corneal and external diseases of the eye and providing the best patient care available.
