Abstract

Summary:

Patients with dysmorphophobia are preoccupied with an imagined or grossly exaggerated defect of appearance. These patients may seek cosmetic surgical procedures to alter their perceived abnormal appearance. Treatment of patients with dysmorphophobia has not been previously addressed in the ophthalmologic literature. The authors present three case reports and discuss the syndrome of dysmorphophobia.
