Cornea Disorders and Treatments

The cornea is the outermost clear, transparent integral layer located in the front of the iris and pupil. It is responsible for the involuntary eyelids reflex and helps to focus the light on the retina.  Any change in the cornea layer consistency causes altered vision. With a decrease in transparency of this layer, blurred vision can occur.

Treatments might include medications, laser treatment, or surgery, depending on the condition. Infections are treated with medicated eyedrops (antibiotics, antivirals, and antiparasitics) and, in some cases, oral medication. Herpetic stromal keratitis is a recurring swelling that develops after a herpes eye infection and is managed with anti-inflammatory steroid eye drops.

An abrasion might require temporary patching or a bandage contact lens, depending on the cause and extent of the injury.
