What isÂ Recurrent Corneal Erosion:
Recurrent corneal erosion is the failure of theÂ cornea‘s outermost layer ofÂ epithelial cellsÂ to attach to the underlying layer.Â Due to loss of cells, and exposure of sensitive corneal nerves this condition is agonizing and painful. Recurrent corneal erosionÂ may be due toÂ corneal dystrophyÂ or corneal disease, but is generally caused from a previous corneal injury. Some predisposing factors, such as diabetes or a corneal dystrophy, may be the underlying cause.
