PurposeTo describe the resolution of conjunctival lesions by making 2 truncations in a mini-scleral lens.
MethodsCase report
ResultsA 44-years old woman with keratoconus developed two vascularized conjunctival lesions in the interpalpebral zone of the right eye after wearing mini-sclera lenses . A refitting with a mini-scleral lens of a different design was performed. Two truncations in the 3 and 9 o’ clock position were made manually.
