Corneal Ulcers

Corneal ulcers may develop due to corneal trauma, eyelid disease, severe dry eyes, herpes simplex viral infections, fungal infections, parasitic infections, and most commonly by bacterial infections related to contact lens over wear.

Symptoms include pain, redness, tearing, blurred vision, discharge and sensitivity to light. The treatment depends on the cause of the corneal ulcer.
