Corneal neovascularization, which is associated with complications in corneal diseases, can cause lipid deposit, decreasing vision, and graft rejection after penetrating keratoplasty (PKP). Corneal laser photocoagulation using an argon laser or yellow dye laser for ablation of corneal neovascularization has been described. We performed corneal argon laser photocoagulation (CALP) in two male patients with corneal neovascularization after herpetic keratitis. One PKP was performed after CALP and restored good vision with no rejection of the graft during an 8 month follow-up period. In the other case we observed visual improvement and no recurrence of corneal neovascularization after CALP.
Key Words: corneal argon laser photocoagulation;corneal neovascularization
