A 27-year-old man with a personality disorder, who did not have keratoconus previously, recently presented with a clinical picture resembling acute corneal hydrops OS three years after silicone oil injection for a complicated retinal detachment. Although self-induced trauma could not be excluded completely, this case might represent a newly described late corneal complication of intracameral silicone oil.
