Corneal Infections

Corneal Infections - Causes and Risk Factors

What causes corneal infections?

Corneal infections usually occur because of exposure to bacterial, fungal or other microbiological agents. Contact lens wear, associated with poor contact lens hygiene is the most common cause.

Apart from contact lens-related infections, corneal infections can also occur following eye injury, or due to pre-existing conditions or diseases of the cornea, e.g. cornea oedema.
