Diabetes affects the eye in many ways. We most commonly think of posterior segment complications as the main problem causing loss of vision in diabetes which is certainly the most common way people suffer ocular damage. However, the anterior segment is not immune to diabetic complications, and the cornea can be affected in a variety of ways. The manifestations of the corneal disease will be discussed in detail in this chapter.
