Corneal Support

Damage to the cornea can result in serious vision loss. Some of these conditions are due to nutritional deficiencies, in which case support by vitamins and supplements may be helpful.

Damage to the cornea presents in a variety of ways. The cornea itself can thicken and become scarred, thus distorting the passage of light through the lens. The inner cell level, the endothelium, can deteriorate (Fuch's dystrophy). The cornea can become mis-shapen, bulging and distorting vision (Keratoconus). The cornea can become inflammed and scarred, distorting vision (Ocular Herpes), or it can redden (Ocular Rosacea). Or dry eye can make the cornea more sensitive to light (Light Sensitivity).
