Abstract

Band keratopathy is a corneal degeneration caused by chronic inflammation, systemic abnormalities, or, rarely, a primary biallelic SLC4A4 mutation leading to calcium hydroxyapatite deposition in Bowman's layer. We report a series of 16 eyes of 10 children with a remote history of diode laser treated retinopathy of prematurity who developed late-onset band keratopathy without evidence of other prior risk factors. The majority of patients developed band keratopathy bilaterally. Five eyes had visually significant central band keratopathy that required treatment with disodium ethylenediaminetetracetic acid (EDTA) chelation or phototherapeutic keratectomy. Band keratopathy may be an underreported late ophthalmic complication of diode-laser treated retinopathy of prematurity.
