Phoenix Cornea Transplant Specialists at Southwestern Eye Center
Also Serving Patients in Tempe, Mesa, Apache Junction and Rural Arizona

Cornea The transparent front window of the eye

The cornea is the clear window in the front of the eye that covers the colored iris and the round pupil. Light is focused while passing through it, allowing us to see. If it is damaged it may become swollen or scarred, distorting our vision.

When vision becomes difficult or painful, disease, injury, infection, previous eye surgery or other problems can cause damage. A transplant is needed if medications or special contact lenses cannot successfully heal or relieve vision problems.

Of all the transplant surgery done today, corneal transplants are by far the most common and successful. Your transplant procedure can be done when a donor is available. Dr. Pfister is Southwestern Eye Center's corneal specialist with offices at our following locations: Phoenix, Mesa, Tempe, Apache Junction, Kingman and Yuma, Arizona.
