Keratitis is a serious eye condition that affects the clear layer over the front of your eye, known as the cornea. It can be caused by a virus or bacteria, and when this is the case it is referred to as infectious keratitis. The condition can also be non-infectious in origin and can be caused by trauma or wearing contact lenses for longer than is recommended by the manufacturer. When left untreated, keratitis can leave you with permanent damage to your eyesight.
