Keratopathy

A general term used to describe a range of disorders of the cornea (the transparent part of the eyeball).

Types

Actinic keratopathy is a painful condition in which the outer layer of the cornea is impaired by ultraviolet light given off from the un, reflected from surfaces such as snow (in which case the problem is called snow-blindness), or given off by artificial sources such as ac-welding torches or sunbeds.

Exposure keratopathy is corneal damage due to lack of the protection afforded by the tear film and blink reflex. It can arise in conditions in which the eyelids insufficiently cover the cornea, including extreme facial palsy, ectropion, and exophthalmos.
