I have read with great interest the review article by Walkden et al on “Brittle Cornea Syndrome: Current Perspectives”.1 I would like to express my appreciation to the authors for an elaborate and comprehensive review of this complex disease which has devastating complications. I agree with the authors on various surgical techniques to manage the eyes with brittle cornea syndrome
I have managed a few children with BCS in our hospital with spontaneous corneal ruptures after a trivial trauma. Based on our experience, I would like to add a few surgical tips in managing a corneal tear in patients with BCS.
