Abstract

A 73-year-old man presented with bilateral corneal opacities. Slit-lamp biomicroscopy showed vortex and oval-shaped opacities. In vivo confocal microscopy (IVCM) showed findings characteristic of amiodarone-induced keratopathy along with epithelial basement membrane dystrophy (EBMD). The IVCM findings indicated that the oval-shaped opacities can be present with amiodarone-induced keratopathy in patients with EBMD.
