Corneal ulcer is a very serious eye medical condition which usually starts from corneal abrasion, which is a mild form of a related eye disease. The medical condition refers to a situation when the eyes suffer from redness, frequent discharges and reduced vision. This infection is mostly bacterial in nature and it is caused by any bacterial attacks to the eye cornea. The biggest threat is when a person is swimming with contact lenses, because this leaves the cornea all the more exposed to bacterial infections.
