Corneal iron ring associated with orthokeratology.


Two teenaged girls had orthokeratology to correct myopia. The postoperative development of corneal iron rings in both eyes was disclosed by a biomicroscopic examination at 3 months in 1 patient and 5 months in the other. The location of the corneal iron rings coincided with the fitting curve of the reverse-geometry rigid contact lens, suggesting that the rings might have developed from tear pooling.
