Causes:

Corneal ulcers are most commonly caused by an infection with bacteria, viruses, fungi, or a parasite.

Acanthamoeba keratitis occurs in contact lens users, especially in people who make their own homemade cleaning solutions. Fungal keratitis can occur after a corneal injury involving plant material, or in people with a suppressed immune system.
Herpes simplex keratitis is a serious viral infection. It may cause repeated attacks that are triggered by stress, esposure to sunlight, or any condition that impairs the immune system.
Corneal ulcers or infections may also be caused by:

Eyelids that do not close all the way, such as with Bell’s palsy
Foreign bodies in the eye
Scratches (abrasions) on the eye surface
Severely dry eyes
Severe allergic eye disease
Various inflammatory disorders
Contact lens wear, especially soft contact lenses worn overnight, may cause a corneal ulcer.
