Corneal neovascularization can be a difficult problem to treat. The authors describe a patient with lipid keratopathy secondary to corneal neovascularization treated with photodynamic therapy. Six months following treatment the neovascularization has not returned and the lipid keratopathy has not increased in size. No significant side effects from the treatment occurred. Photodynamic therapy with Verteporfin was a useful treatment modality in this case of corneal neovascularization with associated lipid keratopathy.
