What is corneal opacity?

The cornea is normally a transparent and regular structure. Various diseases (congenital and acquired) and trauma can cause a focal or diffuse loss of transparency. For various reasons (infection or trauma), scars appear on the cornea. These scars are opaque and make vision difficult.

How is it diagnosed?

It is detected through an eye examination.

If these scars affect the visual axis, i.e. they are in front of the pupil, they cause blurred vision.
