Corneal Conditions

Common Conditions of the Cornea

Fuchs’ Endothelial Corneal Dystrophy
A genetic condition in which the water pumping cells of the cornea’s innermost layer are lost over time. This results in corneal swelling which may blur vision.

Corneal Swelling/Scarring
A variety of mechanisms can lead to corneal swelling or scarring. These include previous eye surgeries, corneal infections, and trauma.

Corneal Ulcers
An ulcer is an open sore that is painful. It heals very slowly and can become dangerous if untreated for a long time. A corneal ulcer is an ulcer that forms on the cornea. If immediate treatment is not provided, it can lead to a worsening of vision and, in very serious cases, even blindness.

Keratoconus is a progressive thinning and bulging of the cornea that makes it difficult to see. In some patients, Keratoconus has progressed past the point where glasses and soft contact lenses can help.
