What is cornea disease?
The cornea is the clear dome over the front of the eye that both helps keep the eye clear of contaminants and refracts light so it focuses on the retina. When the cornea becomes cloudy or irregular in shape, it can negatively impact vision. The skilled ophthalmologists at Clewner & Kelly Eye Center are experienced in treating a number of diseases and disorders that can affect the cornea, including keratitis, ocular herpes, keratoconus, infections, degenerative disorders, and hereditary conditions. If you have been exhibiting any symptoms related to your eyes and vision, contact our friendly team at our center in Boca Raton, FL to schedule a consultation with a board-certified ophthalmologist.
Diagnosis and Treatment of Cornea disease
Some of the most common symptoms of cornea disease include redness, swelling, excess tearing, blurred vision or decrease in vision, and a foreign body sensation in the eye. If you are experiencing these symptoms, contact our Boca Raton, FL office as soon as possible. One of our board-certified ophthalmologists will perform a comprehensive eye exam to look at your eye structures, including the cornea, in-depth. Some of the most common cornea diseases our center treats include:
- Keratitis: An inflammation of the cornea that may be associated with an infection or an eye injury.
- Ocular Herpes: Also called herpes keratitis, this is a viral infection caused by the herpes simplex virus. The infection can be treated with antiviral eye drops, ointments, or medications.
- Keratoconus: A condition in which the cornea thins and bulges into a more cone-like shape. In advanced cases, a corneal transplant may be required.
When left untreated, many of these diseases can cause corneal scarring or lead to corneal ulcers. Prompt treatment is key to preserving your vision and your overall quality of life. Depending on the type and the severity of the cornea disease, Clewner & Kelly Eye Center offers a multitude of advanced treatment options.
"The staff is always so pleasant. The parking is absolutely awful. Often times there are no places to park and you have to keep driving around the small lot hoping for a spot to open. There’s really no place nearby to park and walk either. The office is always super busy but they are extremely organized. The Dr is kept moving from room to room, patient to patient very efficiently however at times I feel rushed and forget to ask my questions."- K.M. / Google / Mar 18, 2022

"I highly recommend Dr Clewner, I consulted him for a second opinion and he was thorough, knowledgeable, caring and very clear in his explanation."- P.C. / Google / Feb 22, 2022
"Dr. Clewner is the best ophthalmologist I have met. I had my chalazion removed back in 2002 That was done in his clinic with absolutely no issues. I’ve been going to him for several years until I changed my employment to Broward county. Due to distance, I had to change my eye specialist, that was a mistake on my part because I should have stayed with Dr. Clewner all the way. However 3 years ago I decided to go back To see him on an annual basis because he was definitely worth the drive. The staff is incredibly professional and friendly. Roger Romer, the contact lens specialist who also works with them is another great individual to get contacts from. I strongly and highly recommend Dr. Clewner and his clinic. You’ll have to experience it for yourself to see the high quality level of treatment you’ll be receiving."- S.M. / Google / Feb 19, 2022
