About

The Cornea Society was founded in 1975 in recognition of the contributions of its original namesake, Ramon Castroviejo, MD, a consummate educator and a pioneer in corneal transplantation. The Society fosters the exchange of information about the cornea and anterior segment of the eye through scientific meetings, communications, and a quality scientific journal and newsletter. It thrives today as an international organization dedicated to the advancement of knowledge about the cornea, external eye and ocular surface, serving as the collective voice of corneal specialists globally and with governmental agencies domestically.
