Corneal crystal deposition due to multiple myeloma is a rare ocular manifestation caused by elevated immunoglobulin levels in the eye. It presents with decreased visual acuity and crystalline deposits in the corneal epithelium or stroma. We describe here two cases of myeloma crystal deposition in the eye, one of which involved crystal deposition in a Laser-Assisted in situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) interface, and one that demonstrated rapid and complete response of corneal crystals with induction… CONTINUE READING
