Eye infections caused by fungi are extremely rare, but they can be very serious. fungal infections can affect different parts of the eye. It has two types

- Keratitis is an infection of the clear, front layer of the eye (the cornea).

- Endophthalmitis is an infection of the inside of the eye (the vitreous and/or aqueous humor). 

The most common way for someone to develop a fungal eye infection is as a result of an eye injury, particularly if the injury was caused by plant material such as a stick or a thorn. If you having any of these fungal eye diseases then you should surely consult an eye specialist
