Case 2. Lasik over RK, then Cataracts, and Hydrops

This patient underwent Radial Keratotomy surgery in the 80’s and Lasik surgery in 2000. Three weeks ago she underwent cataract surgery and developed corneal hyrops. She is being treated with multiple eye drops to clear up her cornea. If it does not clear up, she will need a corneal transplant.

What you are seeing below is a ruptured Desemet's membrane. Internal ocular Fluids have entered the cornea, causing cloudy vision.
