An 11-year-old female presented with sudden diminution of vision and acute pain in the right eye following eye rubbing. She was a known case of vernal keratoconjunctivitis and severe keratoconus in both the eyes. On examination, the cornea of the right eye showed diffuse stromal edema involving the entire cornea [Figure 1]a and marked protrusion [Figure 1]b suggestive of acute corneal hydrops secondary to severe keratoconus.

Acute corneal hydrops is due to a tear in the Descemet membrane, followed by the leakage of aqueous into the stroma resulting in marked corneal edema.[1]
