What is a Cornea Disease?
A Damaged Cornea Diminishes Your Ability to Visually Focus & Tolerate Light
What is cornea disease and how does it affect your vision? The cornea is essentially the clear outer layer of the eye, which acts as a protective barrier against everything from dirt to germs to any other harm-causing objects or agents. The cornea is a significant part of the eye as it relates to healthy vision. When light strikes the eye, it is refracted by the curved edge of the cornea, which allows your eye to determine whether an object in your field of vision is near or far.
A damaged cornea, whether affected by infection, disease or some other trauma to the eye can lead to serious vision loss and problems that could otherwise be addressed and reversed if diagnosed early enough in advance. Our experienced eye doctors have been treating cornea diseases of all varieties for decades. We pride ourselves in not only improving and restoring your vision and the health of your eyes, but also in helping you to recover an optimal quality of life, unhindered by the nagging symptoms of cornea diseases.
Types of Cornea Diseases
From Shape to Scratch, Cornea Diseases Come in Many Forms
There is not just one kind of cornea disease. Rather, there are a wide variety, all of which our experienced eye doctors have treated successfully for patients throughout Columbus and Grove City, Ohio for decades.
Keratoconus is a type of progressive eye disease that distorts and damages the size and shape of the cornea, from a typically round shape to a bulging cone shape. If detected during puberty or teens, it may be treated with eyeglasses or contacts, but may require a cornea transplant procedure later in life.
Fuchs’ Corneal Dystrophy is one of the cornea diseases of the eye that causes the innermost layer of corneal cells to degenerate. This layer of cells, known as the endothelium, is that part of the eye which is responsible for maintaining an appropriate amount of fluid in and around the cornea.
A corneal abrasion simply refers to a scratched cornea. It is amongst the most common eye injuries but is also amongst the most serious, as an untreated corneal abrasion can lead to an increased risk of eye infection.
Corneal ulcers generally occur as a result of a direct injury to the eye, or alternatively, from an eye infection, whether viral, fungal or bacterial. Corneal ulcers cause eye redness, pain, blurry vision and an excessive amount of tearing in the eyes.
Pterygium can be caused by irritation from UV radiation, as well as effects from dust and wind. It is a tissue growth on the cornea of the eye which generally begins in the region of the cornea in close proximity to the nose.
