Corneal degeneration sith matured cataract. Corneal degenerations are changes or gradual deteriorations in the tissue of the cornea. They can negatively impact the function of the cornea, limiting its ability to help the eye focus properly. Over time, corneal degenerations can cause loss of vision, eye pain, and other issues. Consult Corneal Surgion.

Anterior uveitis, which is diagnosed by slit lamp examination, refers to inflammation of the iris and ciliary body and occurs frequently with herpes zoster ophthalmicus. It may be isolated or associated with keratitis.
