This man came in requesting surgery to correct a drooping left upper eyelid, and it turns out he has advanced keratoconus on this side with a history of eye rubbing. The maps show a normal corneal profile on the right, and advanced keratoconus on the left.
Keratoconus is not the only disease that happens from eye rubbing….Blepharoptosis also results from eye rubbing. Interestingly, he was treated with collagen cross linking for the GOOD eye “just in case it got worse”. No one ever told him to stop rubbing his eyes!
We will undertake a stromal transplant to correct the vision in the left eye.
