Abstract

Purpose.

To describe a case of spontaneous subepithelial hemorrhage in a soft contact lens user.

Methods.

A 45-year-old man with irritation and decreased vision had four-quadrant pannus and corneal subepithelial hemorrhage in an annular pattern.

Results.

The subepithelial hemorrhage was drained and the feeder vessel coagulated. The hemorrhage subsequently absorbed with time.

Conclusions.

Soft contact lens users should be monitored for the development of significant neovascularization.
