PRK followed by Scleral Melt

I am posting these photos in response to a comment made about Mitomycin C reducing the risk of cornea haze during PRK surgery. What you are seeing in these photos is what is known as a “Scleral Melt”. 7 years prior to the time these photos were taken, this eye was subjected to Mitomycin C. These 2 photos were taken about 3 months apart. Over a 30 month period, this eye underwent 8 separate operations to close this wound. What you are seeing is a hole into the white portion (the sclera) of the eye just behind the lower eyelid. If you doubt what I am writing, just Google Mitomycin C and Scleral Melt.
