Corneal Opacity

more about Corneal Opacity


  • The cornea is normally clear transparent tissue in the eye, which allows light to pass and focus so that we can see. The cornea can become cloudy or opacified, due to the presence of scar tissue secondary to injury (or after eye surgery) or infection (e.g., Herpes infection of the eye).
  • Scar tissue prevents light from passing through the cornea, resulting in loss of vision. Scar tissue can be removed surgically or by use of the excimer laser in a procedure known as phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK).
  • In those with severe scarring and opacification of the cornea, a cornea transplant may be necessary.
