People with eyelid disorders, cold sores, and who wear contact lenses are at risk of developing corneal ulcers. Eyes are very susceptible to irritation from contact lenses, especially if the lenses are not handled safely, stored correctly, or cleaned properly.

Other causes of corneal ulcers include:

dry eyes
widespread infection
abrasions or burns to the cornea
Bell’s palsy
