The purpose of this study is to present a case of bilateral corneal keloids after performing eyelid compression for half a year. This study was a retrospective case report. Visual acuity, as well as detailed high-resolution images of external eye photography, anterior segment optical coherence tomography (ASOCT), and topography were documented. Initially, the best-corrected visual acuities were 20/20 (OD) and 20/32 (OS). ASOCT revealed a characteristic irregular hyperplastic epithelium, a disrupted Bowman's layer, and an edematous stroma for both eyes. Topography exposed an irregular astigmatism of 2.1 diopters for the left eye, while the right eye had a relatively smooth surface. After 1 year of conservative treatment, the best-corrected visual acuity improved to 20/20 (OU), and astigmatism also decreased. Corneal keloid may be induced after long-term eyelid compression. ASOCT and topography are useful for detecting and monitoring disease progression. Conservative treatments are suggested as the first line of therapy, while the size, depth, and location of the lesions are tolerable.
