Abstract

We describe a case of severe craniofacial trauma with resultant exposure keratopathy that was refractive to traditional treatment measures including aggressive lubrication, tarsorrhaphy, platinum lid weight implantation, punctal plugs, correction of lid retraction, amniotic membrane application, and multiple bandage contact lenses. Through combined Boston scleral lens placement and traumatic cataract extraction with intraocular lens (IOL) implantation using scleral lens IOL power calculations, we were able to maximize patient comfort and attain superior visual acuity. To our knowledge, calculation of IOL power through a scleral lens has not been described.
