Keratitis is a medical condition of the eye in which the cornea is inflamed. Bacterial infection of the cornea can follow from an injury or from contact lens wearing. Viral infection of the cornea is usually caused by herpes simplex virus and called a 'dendritic ulcer' due to its shape when looked at with a slit lamp. Amoebic infection of the cornea is the most serious corneal infection, usually only affecting soft contact-lens wearers.
