Abstract

Except in animal models of cataractogenesis, the literature on the effects of tea infusion on ocular tissue is scant. In our patient, prolonged exposure to tea infusion may have led to a hypesthetic cornea with secondary limbal stem cell loss. In turn, the eye developed keratinization and corneal neovascularization.
