The front surface of the eyeball is a true masterpiece of the human body. The skin around the eyelids, the eyelids, and tissues making up the front part of the eyeball, the conjunctiva and the cornea, are very delicate.
DID YOU KNOW? The cornea is the clear tissue that sits on top of the coloured part of your eye (your iris) and its surface layer is one of the fastest healing tissues in your body. The outermost corneal cells, known as the epithelial cells, can heal themselves is as little as 24 hours.
Unfortunately, your corneal healing mechanism may be damaged or various types of diseases can affect the quality of the front surface of your eye, leaving you with poor quality of vision and in some cases, severe ocular pain.
