Fungal keratitis

A fungal keratitis is an 'inflammation of the eye's cornea' (called keratitis) that results from infection by a fungal organism.

Keratomycosis is the latin terminology equivalent of fungal keratitis - it is the fungal infection of the cornea, the anterior part of the eye which covers the pupil.

Those experiencing these symptoms are typically advised to immediately visit the appropriate eyecare professional.
