Cornea is a outer most layer of the eye. It is clear, dome shaped surface that covers front of the eye. It plays an important role in focusing your vision.
According to the World Health Organization, corneal diseases are among the major causes of vision loss and blindness in the world today after cataract and glaucoma. In India it is estimated that there are approximately 6.8 million people who have vision less than 6/60 in at least one eye due to corneal diseases; of these, about a million have bilateral involvement. It is expected that the number of individuals with unilateral corneal blindness in India will increase to 10.6 million by 2020 The burden of corneal disease in our country is reflected by the fact that 90% of the global cases of ocular trauma and corneal ulceration leading to corneal blindness occur in developing countries.
