corneal

 [kor´ne-al]
pertaining to the cornea.
corneal reflex a reflex action of the eye resulting in automatic closing of the eyelid when the cornea is stimulated. The corneal reflex can be elicited in a normal person by gently touching the cornea with a wisp of cotton. Absence of the corneal reflex indicates deep coma or injury of one of the nerves carrying the reflex arc.
corneal transplantation transplantation of a donor cornea into the eye of a recipient, done to improve the vision of patients with distorted curvature of the cornea (keratoconus) or corneal edema, infection, trauma, or intractable pain. Vision should improve beginning the day after surgery with optimal vision 6 to 12 months later. Because the cornea does not have a blood supply, corneal transplants were one of the earliest successful types of organ transplants. Called also keratoplasty.

The patient did have mildly compromised corneal endothelial function in the left eye prior to the second trauma as indicated by increased CCT, but once the cortical material dislocated into the anterior chamber, it caused progression of glaucoma as well as significant worsening of corneal edema and visual acuity.
Consequently, wound burn, Descemet's membrane detachment and corneal edema lasting longer than 10 days were observed more frequently in group C.
In the phacosandwich group 16% had SK, 12% had SK with corneal edema and 8% had corneal edema alone.
In order to preoperatively reduce the corneal edema, a topical hypertonic solution (sodium chloride 5%--1878 mOsm/l) was prescribed, one drop four times a day, before surgery until the preoperative visit.

Furthermore patients with iris neovascularization and neovascular glaucoma often present with hyphema or corneal edema which prevent full laser treatment and there are cases that despite grid laser some patients continue to have increased macular thickness (edema).
It should not be forgotten that an increase in CCT and CV due to topical fluorosis for any postoperative reason may cause suspicion of endothelial dysfunction and corneal edema, which may lead to the use of secondary drugs.
In the left eye, the stromal infiltrate was increased in size with corneal edema, and large KP; in the anterior chamber, a new hyphema and fibrinoid reaction were noted.
Post-operatively, antibiotics and steroids instillation was adviced to reduce inflammation and corneal edema. The animal made an uneventful recovery after 20 days of worm removal and no recurrence was reported for three months.
Biomicroscopic examination revealed congestion of the eye with diffuse corneal edema, visual acuity of hand movements, IOP on applanation was 54 mmHg.
It is characterized by high intra-ocular pressure (IOP) corneal edema photophobia extreme tearing and enlargement of eye ball (buphthalmos).3 Primary congenital glaucoma mostly segregates as an autosomal recessive disorder.4
