What Causes Cornea Problems?
Eye disease and injuries can damage the cornea. Here are some common eye problems that can lead to a damaged cornea:
- Keratoconus, where the cornea is coneshaped rather than dome-shaped
- Fuchs’ dystrophy, where cells in the inner layer of the cornea are not working effectively
- Eye infections or injuries that scar the cornea
- Previous corneal surgery or other eye surgery that damaged the cornea
