The authors describe a minimally invasive surgical technique to re-establish corneal sensibility in a patient with neurotrophic keratopathy with the supraorbital nerve harvested endoscopically.


Pedicled contralateral supraorbital nerve was harvested endoscopically through small eyelid crease and scalp incisions and transferred to the affected eye.


Endoscopic corneal neurotization was successfully performed with restoration of corneal sensibility and corneal epithelial integrity.


The use of an endoscope allows for a minimally invasive approach to successful corneal neurotization with the supraorbital nerve.
