The cornea is located right in front of the coloured part (iris) and the black part (pupil), acting as the eye’s front surface, letting light enter the eye.

It’s this clear, curved part at the front of your eye, like a dome, that protects your eye and makes sure light goes to the back (retina) so you can see well.

The cornea is crucial for good vision, but various issues can impact it and cause vision problems.


  • Corneal Injuries – Trauma or injury to the eye, such as scratches, cuts, or foreign bodies, can damage the cornea.
  • Infections – Bacterial, viral, or fungal infections can affect
the cornea, leading to conditions like keratitis.
  • Corneal Dystrophies – Genetic conditions can cause
abnormal changes in the cornea, such as Fuchs’ dystrophy
or lattice dystrophy.
  • Corneal Ulcers – Open sores on the cornea, often caused
by infections or severe dry eye, can lead to ulcers and
vision impairment.
  • Keratoconus – This condition involves the thinning and
bulging of the cornea, resulting in distorted vision.
