Abstract

The cornea should be examined carefully during any ocular examination. Certain simple procedures can aid diagnosis and help the physician choose easy therapy to prevent changes in the patient's vision that can result in blindness. The use of good lighting and magnification is mandatory for better diagnosis. Corneal epithelial defects can be better defined with fluorescein staining.
