Abstract

• Thirteen eyes with symptomatic basement membrane dystrophy were treated with total superficial keratectomy and soft bandage lenses. During a follow-up of six weeks to 48 months, 84.7% (11/13) were relieved of symptoms. A low incidence of recurrent basement membrane abnormalities was observed.
