A 45 year-old man developed a left fungal keratitis. Although the infection was controlled with regular topical natamycin, the cornea perforated. A conjunctival flap was used to covered the perforation as corneal graft was thought to have a low success rate in restoring vision. (Note: These pictures were taken with Canon digital camera before the anterior segment camera became available in the department.)
