  • Corneal edema may lead to intraepithelial vesicles and bullae between epithelium and Bowman layer
  • Aberrant basal lamina may develop within corneal epithelium in response to some injuries

  • Blood vessels may be present in superficial or deep stroma after inflammatory conditions (normally cornea is avascular)
