Section of the Cornea. 190 COMMONER DISEASES OF THE EYE membrane, a thin, tough and very elastic layer,which is lined by, and so forms the roof of theanterior chamber, a layer of hexagonal cells, theendothelium. Corneal Ulcers are usually due to the en-trance into the corneal substance of some oneof the microorganisms productive of inflamma-tory conditions. The virulence of the infectiondepends upon the nature of the bacterium,whether it he the gonococcus, streptococcus,staphylococcus, pneumococcus or other germ. In the earliest stage of ulcer one first noticesa localized, hazy appearance of some part of thecorneal surface, after which the epithelium cov-ering this area breaks down, allowing one ormore pathogenic microorganisms to penetrateinto the corneal substance. Injury to the cor-nea in some form or other (commonly removalof the protective anterior epithelium) is usuallythe primary cause, even when the infection issecondary to a purulent or mucopurulent inflam-mation of the conju
