Corneal neovascularization is the unnecessary ingrowth of blood vessels from the limbal vascular plexus into the cornea, caused by disruption of the balance between angiogenic and antiangiogenic factors that preserves corneal transparency. Immature new blood vessels may lead to lipid exudation, persistent inflammation, and scarring, thus threatening corneal transparency and visual insight.
