What is Cornea ?

Cornea is a clear transplant avascular outermost coat of eye. It plays a key role in eye vision. About 2/3 (two thirds) of eye focussing power is provided by cornea. Any disease that affects its transparency, vascularity or curvature causes problem in vision.

Types of Corneal Disorders

CORNEAL ABRASION

It means scratch in the cornea due to trauma and is very painful and can lead to eye infection which is further described below.

INFECTIOUS KERATITIS (CORNEA ULCER)

Infectious keratitis can be bacterial, fungal, viral or parasitic. It leads to severe pain and can cause blindness.

CORNEAL ECTASIAS

In this disease ,cornea becomes thin and bulges outward. This in turn causes astigmatism and drop in vision. The most common type is KERATOCONUS. It is mostly bilateral progressive disorder. In early stages. It is generally symptomatic and needs to be ruled out before any corneal refractive surgery. In later stages keratoconus can lead to corneal scarring & severe drop of vision.

CORNEAL DEGENERATION

This occurs mostly due to ageing, environmental toxins, some systemic disease etc.It is associated with corneal thining, vasularisation etc and is characterized by loss of transparency of cornea with subsequent loss of functional activity leading to progressive loss of vision. However, the most common type of corneal degeneration is ARCUS SENILIS which is symptomatic & does not cause any vision loss as it is in periphery.

CORNEAL DYSTROPHY

These are group of rare, genetic disease. Characterized by bilateral abnormal deposition of substances leading to recurrent corneal erosion which causes severe pain and decrease in vision.

CORNEAL OPACITY

Any of the condition mentioned above can cause corneal opacity which can be superficial or deep & can cause decrease of vision.

Corneal blindness is one of the most common causes of blindness throughout the world. Early management in cases of progressive keratoconus helps to stop its progression and provides better refractive stability. Many corneal diseases, if diagnosed and treated on time, can prevent permanent blindness in eyes.

MEDICAL TREATMENT

Concentrated antibiotics eye drops can be given in cases of infectious keratitis ( ulcer) . Culture sensivity should be done before starting the eye drops.
