THE DELICATE BALANCE OF THE EYE'S SURFACE
The cornea and ocular surface play a pivotal role in vision, acting as the eye's protective barrier and primary refractive surface. Diseases like corneal ulcers can disrupt this balance, leading to pain, redness, and potential vision loss. Factors such as infections, injuries, or underlying conditions can precipitate these diseases, emphasising the need for prompt diagnosis and care.
