Corneal Disease

corneal-disease

The cornea is a clear rounded surface on the front of the eye through which light enters the eye and enables us to see. Some of the major types of corneal disease are keratoconus, Fuchs’ endothelial dystrophy, and bullous keratopathy.

Bullous keratopathy – The endothelium no longer pumps fluids out of the tissue which results in permanent swelling of the cornea.

Fuchs’ endothelial dystrophy – is hereditary. The cornea swells and becomes cloudy due to an aberration in the cornea, thus decreasing vision.

Keratoconus – a cone shaped distortion appears with gradual progression, usually in both eyes. This weakens the cornea.

Your doctor checks for corneal disease using advanced diagnostic technology. If any corneal disease is found, it should be treated soon.

You know your eyes better than anyone.
If they don't see, feel or look as well as you'd like them to,
Request an Appointment with one of our doctors or call 239-542-2020.
