Corneal inflammation with the medical term keratitis is an eye inflammation that causes pain. An infection or a physical injury might bring it on. There are several types of corneal inflammation, each of which requires specific treatment.
The eye is extremely sensitive, and it has several layers in place to defend itself from damage. The eyelid protects the eye from infection by covering it with tears and fluid. At the same time, the cornea is the eye’s outermost protective layer, and it shields the eye from dirt, germs, and disease. Because it is one of the first lines of defence, the cornea is more prone to irritation and inflammation.
