The human eye can be vulnerable to fungal infections simply by being exposed to the environment. The human eye can also be vulnerable to infect internally.
Note: Ensure that your research is limited to infections not caused by direct trauma to the eye.
Based on your research, respond to the following:
- How does such a sensitive organ protect itself against such common infections?
- What are the main causes for fungal eye infections?
- Why is an immunocompromised host more likely to get a fungal eye infection (excluding traumatic infections)?
