The clear outer protective layer of the eye is called cornea. Any damage to the cornea by disease, infection, or injury, results in scar formation that affects the vision. The eye diseases that can affect the cornea are keratitis, ocular herpes, shingles, keratoconus, Map-dot-fingerprint dystrophy, Fuchs’ dystrophy, Bullous keratopathy, and lattice dystrophy. The cornea usually heals on its own after an infection or injury, but the symptoms that it causes during the healing process are pain, redness, blurred vision, watery eyes, and sensitivity to light. Depending on the disease, the treatment is done by the use of antibacterial or antifungal or antiviral eye drops, laser, or surgery.
