'If they come in with a corneal scar
, they might get formulation B.'
Human corneal stroma in a healthy cornea is composed of highly organized lamellae and mitotically quiescent keratocytes with dendritic morphology., Damage from topical drugs, trauma, and infection often leads to a loss of intercellular contact and stimulates keratocyte-fibroblast-myofibroblast transition, increasing the risk of corneal scar
formation, corneal opacification, and visual impairment.,
(i) Corneal scar
formed and stroma cell activated with no hyphae by ICVM at 14 days after corneal debridement.
Recheck of the corneal ulcer at 18 weeks revealed an axial corneal scar
with fine, superficial corneal blood vessels.
Nearly 20 percent of such reports involved a central corneal scar
, a decrease in visual acuity or required a corneal transplant.
Overall, 213 (19.8%) reports described a patient who had a central corneal scar
, had a decrease in visual acuity, or required a corneal transplant following the event.
Trimming of graft was carried out after 3-4 weeks of surgery to allow graft to recede and reduce the corneal scar
Common ocular co-morbidities are corneal scar
, macular scar and cataract.
There was no significance difference in the duration of work in terms of corneal scar
presence (p=0.848) (Table 2).
Microbial keratitis is a serious condition that could result in corneal scar
, corneal perforation, and even blindness.
1) but a corneal scar
with prolapsing intra-ocular tissue was visible on elevating the upper lid (Fig.
Long-term management includes: refractive correction of the astigmatism generated by a corneal scar
, penetrating keratoplasty when the scar compromises the visual axis directly or when there is corneal decompensation due to endothelial cell damage, and cataract surgery if required (4).
