A 77-year-old man was referred to the cornea service for painless, progressive blurring of vision in his left eye. His best-corrected visual acuity was 20/40 OS, and the patient reported that his vision had waxed and waned over several months. His ocular history included cataract surgery in the left eye, followed by yttrium-aluminum-garnet capsulotomy 2 months before his referral. Of note, he had recently undergone Mohs surgery and subsequent reconstruction for squamous cell carcinoma in situ of the lateral canthus in the fellow eye; he also had a medical history of multiple skin malignant neoplasms.
