Corneal Chemical Burns

Acute alkali burn of great severity. Marked involvement of facial skin is apparent.
Acute alkali burn of greatest severity. Perilimbal blanching, chemosis, and corneal opacification are evident.
Acute alkali burn of severe degree. The eye rolled upward in avoidance (Bell phenomenon), exposing the lowest aspect of the cornea to the greatest damage.
Contact lens glued with cyanoacrylate adhesive to chemically-burned cornea.
Continuous perfusion of a chemically-injured eye.
Rapid desiccation of cornea just before perforation in an alkali-burned eye.
Blowout patch on perforated, alkali-burned cornea; healing occurs with scarring.
Heavily vascularized cornea with symblepharon several years after severe chemical burn. Poor prognosis is expected for penetrating keratoplasty.
Opacification of keratoplasty in heavily vascularized cornea.
