What is a corneal infection?

      3 Comments on What is a corneal infection?

The cornea is the eye’s outermost layer. It is the clear, dome-shaped surface that covers the front of the eye. The normal healthy cornea is generally very resilient to infection. Sometimes, the cornea damages when an infected object passes through the intact healthy tissue, like for example a poke in the eye. Whereas in other instances, bacteria or fungi from an unclean contact lens can pass into the cornea.

When you fall under situations like these it can cause inflammation and corneal infections called keratitis. Infections like these can decrease visual clarity. In worst cases it can even erode the cornea. Corneal infections when heal, can result in corneal scarring, which can impair vision and may require a corneal transplant. With proper and timely diagnosis regarding the exact causing agent of the infection, we  can cure the infection with appropriate drops and prevent potential damage and vision loss.
