PURPOSE To describe the formation of deep calcareous degeneration of the cornea associated with the use of preservative-free eyedrops in patients with a persistent epithelial defect and active ocular surface inflammation. METHODS A case series of 6 patients with persistent epithelial defects (1 with diabetes, 3 with penetrating keratoplasty, and 2 with herpes zoster) treated with preservative-free medications was reviewed over 18 months. Each patient subsequently developed deep calcareous… CONTINUE READING
