" Our expertly trained staff has the knowledge and experience to diagnose and treat common corneal diseases and disorders."


Every day patients come to the Florida Eye Specialists and Cataract Institute for help with all types of conditions related to the cornea and ocular surface, including Keratoconus, Corneal Dystrophy, Infectious Keratitis, as well as inflammatory and allergic conditions. We offer comprehensive consultation, the latest diagnostic capabilities and treatment for diseases of the cornea and external ocular surface.

The cornea is the clear, dome-shaped front part of the eye – a thin, clear, spherical layer of tissue on the surface of the eye that provides a window for light to pass through. It provides most of the eye’s optical power. In a healthy eye, the cornea bends or refracts light rays so they focus precisely on the retina in the back of the eye.

Corneal Symptoms:

  • Reduced vision
  • Eye swelling
  • Increased eye pressure
  • Cloudy vision

Our doctors and staff deliver your eye care with a personal service that’s second to none. We consider our patients an extension of our family, and treat you the same way
