Toffee’s Spontaneous Chronic Corneal Epithelial Defect (SCCED) – Ophthalmology Case Study

For this case study we focus on Toffee. She first presented with a corneal ulcer affecting her left eye in May this year. After medical treatment failed, Toffee was referred and diagnosed with a spontaneous chronic corneal epithelial defect (SCCED), also known as a non-healing or indolent ulcer. This type of ulcer usually require surgery so Toffee was admitted for a Superficial Keratectomy. Under general anaesthetic and using the operating microscope the affected layer of cornea was removed and a contact lens placed to aid in her post-operative comfort. Two weeks after her procedure, we are happy to report that Toffee’s eye has healed and is comfortable again!
