Astigmatism

Basic Understanding: Astigmatism is an imperfection in the curvature of your cornea — the clear, round dome covering the eye's iris and pupil. Abnormal curvature of the cornea can result in abnormal focusing of light and impaired vision. In a normal eye, the cornea and lens focus light rays on the retina.

Corneal Erosions

Basic Understanding: Recurrent corneal erosion is a disorder of the eyes characterized by the failure of the cornea's outermost layer of epithelial cells to stay attached to the underlying basement membrane (Bowman's layer). The cornea is the clear front of the eye which is covered by a layer of protective cells much like the outer protective layer.

Corneal Ulcer

Basic Understanding: A corneal ulcer is a defect in the surface of the cornea, the transparent front of the eye. This defect is usually an infection caused by a bacterium, virus, fungus, or Amoeba. Bacteria, Fungi, and Viruses often cause severe pain and redness. Amoeba infections can occur from swimming in fresh water.

Basic Understanding: A potentially serious viral infection that can involve all parts of the eye. Keratitis, the most common manifestation of this condition, that is infection and inflammation of the cornea, the transparent front of the eye.
