Corneal diseases encompass a range of conditions that affect the cornea, the clear, outer layer of the eye, leading to symptoms such as pain, blurred vision, redness, and sensitivity to light. Common corneal diseases include keratitis (inflammation), keratoconus (thinning and bulging), and corneal dystrophies (genetic conditions causing abnormal deposits). These conditions can result from infections, injuries, genetic factors, or underlying health issues. Treatment options vary depending on the specific disease and its severity, ranging from medications and corrective lenses to surgical interventions like corneal transplants.
