Abstract

A 64-year-old man with open-angle glaucoma had used topically applied epinephrine for 13 years. He developed a foreign-body sensation and persistent superotemporal corneal erosion as a result of an adrenochrome deposit on the upper tarsus. Removal of the deposit ended the corneal erosion and returned visual acuity to normal.
