There is more thsn one kind of Povidone-Iodine. This paper on the ocular use of povidone-iodine warns against using the version sold for topical use, called the "detergent" version.
"It is important to avoid the detergent version of povidone-iodine generally used as a skin antiseptic, since this solution will adversely affect the cornea."

While this one details the use of povidone-iodine specifically made as an opthalmic solution:

There is a difference.
