Whorl keratopathy of cornea (Photo)

This cornea has a subtle finding of linear deposits on the surface epithelium. This is called whorl keratopathy (also known as hurricane keratopathy or verticillata) and occurs secondary to several medications. This finding is usually subtle, and doesn’t seem to cause any visual symptoms.

To see what this looks like, you may want to watch our whorl keratopathy video from which this snapshot was taken.
