A 45-year-old female presented with complaints of gradual progressive diminution of vision in the right eye for 5 years. The best-corrected visual acuity was 2/60 and 6/24 in the right and left eye, respectively. On examination of right eye, there was 360° peripheral thinning (maximum superiorly) with superficial vascularization associated with lipid deposition. [Figure 1]a. At 11–12 o'clock position, there was an intrastromal cyst with surrounding scarring in the right eye [Figure 1]b, [Figure 1]c, [Figure 1]d. Similar features were seen in the left eye though with less amount of thinning. Thus, she was diagnosed with bilateral Terrien's marginal degeneration.
