Cornea Center

The cornea is the transparent front part of your eye, covering the iris (the colored part) and pupil (the black center). The cornea is often compared to the windshield of a car, as it’s the barrier between the inside of the eye and the outside world.

Images enter your eye as light, then are transmitted and sent to your brain for processing. This is how you see. The cornea allows the image you are looking at to be carried by light waves into the interior of your eye by gathering and focusing visual images. This focusing allows the images you see to be sharp and clear.
