Have you observed your child frequently scratching or rubbing their eyes, showing difficulty in focusing on objects, or struggling with activities like reading? Do these symptoms seem to impede their developmental progress? As a parent, it can be deeply unsettling to notice such signs in your child, potentially indicating a congenital corneal disease.

Understanding Congenital Corneal Diseases

The news that your newborn has a congenital corneal disease can be extremely overwhelming. The mix of emotions – from confusion to devastation – is understandable. However, it's important to know that you are not alone in this journey. At Eye Clinic London, we understand the emotional turmoil and concern that comes with such observations and diagnoses.

Types and Symptoms

Types and Symptoms

Congenital corneal diseases encompass a range of conditions present from birth, affecting the clarity, shape, or overall health of the cornea – the eye's clear, front surface. These diseases can vary in severity and type, including conditions like corneal dystrophies, congenital glaucoma, or keratoconus. The causes are often rooted in genetics, though environmental factors during pregnancy can also contribute.
