World class corneal care - right on your doorstep

How corneal conditions affect our vision

Different corneal disorders will affect vision in different ways.

Corneal infections may cause the patient mild or great pain. Eyes may also be sensitive to bright light, or vision may become blurry. These infections may also cause discomfort when opening or closing the eyelids.

If diagnosed in good time, dry eye will have limited affect on vision, and the patient will only suffer the uncomfortable symptoms. However, if left untreated there may be serious implications on vision, as the cornea may be perforated leading to infection and reduced visibility. Therefore, it is important to seek medical assistance as soon as symptoms materialise.

Keratoconus can cause substantial distortion of vision, and patients have reported multiple images, streaking and sensitivity to light. If both eyes are affected this may significantly reduce the patient’s ability to drive a car and many other daily activities.

These conditions may affect one or both eyes.
