Abstract

Background: The presentation of microcornea associated with axial myopia by means of modern examination techniques. Methods: Clinical investigations. Results: The horizontal diameter of the cornea was 8.00 mm on both sides. The average refractive power of the cornea was 39.27D/38.48D on the right/left sides by corneal topography. The central corneal thickness was 568 μm/559 μm on the right and left sides, respectively. The depth of the anterior chamber was 1.18 mm/1.14 mm and the origin of the irises was steep, as demonstrated by ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM). The axial length was 26.42 mm/25.63 mm on the right/ left sides. Endothelial morphology disclosed degeneration on both sides. Conclusions: The present case demonstrates that the clinical signs of microcornea are flat corneal surface, normal thickness, and degenerated endothelium. This disorder associated with axial myopia is an extremely rare ophthalmologic condition.
