Corneal Infection Treatments

A corneal infection, or keratitis, occurs when the cornea is damaged by a foreign object, or from bacteria or fungi (often from a contaminated contact lens).

This can cause painful inflammation and can lead to corneal scarring. In the most serious cases, keratitis can cause blindness.

Some viruses and fungi can also cause keratitis. Tap water can contain a germ that causes keratitis, and contact lens wearers are more susceptible to this type of keratitis as well.

Some of the causes for Keratitis
● Eye injury from a scratch or foreign object
● Allergic reaction to deposits on the lenses
● Dryness of the eyes.

Symptoms of corneal infection
● Blurry or hazy vision,
● Eye that appears red or bloodshot,
● Itching and discharge,
● Very painful and watery eyes,
● White patch on the cornea
