The human eye has 3 coats, the outermost of which is protective fibrous layer, the sclerocorneal layer. The sclera is the white of the eye. Placed in the front of the sclera, like a watch glass, is the CORNEA

The cornea is a transparent structure and the window through which we see the world. It accounts for a major part of the refractive power of the eye and is primarily responsible for focusing light rays on to the retina of the eye. God has blessed us with a number of mechanisms to maintain the transparency and clarity of the cornea. Any modification by disease process or abnormal stress can cause loss of transparency of the cornea leading to blurring or loss of vision.

About Cornea

The cornea is the clear front surface of the eye. It lies directly in front of the iris and pupil, and it allows light to enter the eye.

A corneal ulcer is an open sore in the cornea. It is usually produced by an infection, commonly bacterial, fungal or viral. The ulcer can either be located in the center of the cornea and greatly affect the vision or be placed in the periphery and not affect it so much. There are at least 25,000 cases of bacterial and fungal corneal ulcers each in India every year. Infections that develop in the cornea are frequently associated with trauma, contact lens overuse and dry eyes.

The first symptoms of keratoconus can be experienced in mid teens in the form of blurry vision. As the condition progresses, it significantly affects the eye and may cause sudden loss of vision. Once diagnosed, the condition can be managed with the right lenses. It is recommended that the patient takes regular eye check ups if diagnosed with Keratoconus.

A graft replaces central corneal tissue, damaged due to disease or injury, with healthy corneal tissue donated from a local eye bank. An unhealthy cornea affects your vision by scattering or distorting light and causing blurry or glary vision. A cornea transplant may be necessary to restore your functional vision.
