Obtain diagnosis: Corneal inflammation is only a description. Corneal evaluation by an ophthalmologist is essential. This will likely produce a diagnosis, which will likely lead to suggestions of treatment options, need for further local ocular and or systemic testing and yet additional possible treatment options and prognosis.

See an eye doctor: The cornea can swell as a result of several conditions, but true inflammation is much less common and is often a result of infection. Regradless of the cause, any decreased vision from corneal swelling should be evaluated by an eye doctor. There are usually very good treatment options available.
