Cornea related conditions

Corneal disease is a serious condition that can cause clouding, distortion, scarring, and eventually blindness. There are many types of corneal disease. The three major types are keratoconus, Fuchs' endothelial dystrophy, and bullous keratopathy.

Corneal disorders are the triggering factors that range from nutritional deficiency, allergens, infections, trauma, autoimmune disorders, tumors, outgrowths, etc

To diagnose, a patient may require a direct, single-approach treatment modality or a regimen with multiple treatment methods to treat the condition.
