Keratitis is an inflammatory condition that affects the cornea of your eye. The cornea is a clear, domed part that, like a roof, covers the iris and pupil. Keratitis can be caused by an infection or an eye injury.
The treatment for your keratitis depends on what is causing it.
Without treatment, the symptoms of keratitis will progress and worsen. For example, the symptoms of bacterial keratitis may appear immediately.
