Acute corneal hydrops (CH) occurs when there is a tear in descemets membrane causing rolling of its edges, creating a gap through which aqueous from anterior chamber (AC) percolates into corneal stroma. Acute CH occurs in approximately 2.5-3% of eyes with KC. Conventional therapy is patching or bandage contact lens application with topical cycloplegics and topical hypertonic sodium chloride. Here, we report a case of 9-year-old boy with bilateral keratoconus with left eye acute hydrops who was successfully treated with pneumodesmetopexy with perflouropropane (C3F8).
