CORNEAL SCAR

This patient is now in his 50s, but suffered a scratch to the eye when he was a child. A surgeon attempted a procedure to laser off the front surface but it was unsuccessful since the scar was too deep. If this patient desires to see well again in this eye, they would have to go through the long and hard process of getting a corneal transplant, and then having a hard contact lens fit about a year later. In this case, it is best to protect the fellow eye with polycarbonate lenses, which are super strong.
