Abstract

We report a case of a 78-year-old man presenting with 2 discrete areas of sterile corneal melting associated with chronic use of topical ketorolac after uneventful clear corneal phacoemulsification. He was treated successfully with tissue adhesive application. Patients receiving chronic topical ketorolac treatment, especially those with ocular surface abnormalities, can present with severe complications such as corneal melting.
