edema of the corneal stroma and epithelium; occurs in Fuchs endothelial dystrophy, advanced glaucoma, iridocyclitis, and sometimes after intraocular lens implantation.
bul·lous ker·a·top·a·thy(bul'ŭs ker'ă-top'ă-thē)
Edema of the corneal stroma and epithelium resulting in formation of bullae on the corneal surface. It occurs in Fuchs epithelial dystrophy, advanced glaucoma and iridocyclitis, endothelial failure, and sometimes after intraocular lens implantation.
Either of two corneal edemas in an eye in which the natural lens has been removed, aphakic (ABK) or pseudophakic (PBK).

noninflammatory disease of the cornea. See also corneal.
corneal opacities seen in dogs in tropical and subtropical areas of the United States; attributed to an unidentified mycotic or mycobacterial infection. Called also Florida spots, Florida fungus.
subcorneal calcification associated with local ocular disease or systemic abnormalities of calcium or phosphorus metabolism.
a nonspecific response of the cornea to inflammation in which vesicles and bullae occur.
deposition of lipid in the stroma of the cornea. In the primary disease, there is no association with abnormalities of lipid metabolism or elevated blood lipid levels. In secondary disease, lipids are deposited in scars and previous corneal lesions, or in association with abnormalities of systemic lipid metabolism.
