Abstract

Viruses that affect the cornea produce changes that range from benign, self-limited conjunctivitis to sight-threatening scarring and vascularization of the cornea. In this article, the forms of viral keratitis most commonly encountered by the clinician are reviewed. The epidemiology, clinical presentation, and treatment of infection by Herpes simplex virus, varicella zoster virus, and the adenoviruses are discussed. Also included are other viral infections of the cornea.
