We report the case of a 32-year-old male patient who presented with conjunctival redness after multiple bilateral eye-whitening surgeries. Slit-lamp examination revealed scleral melting, avascular areas, and demarcation lines in both eyes. Considering the treatment history and the clinical findings of the patient, we conclude that the removal of the conjunctiva and Tenon’s layer and use of mitomycin C is not desirable for a healthy ocular surface.
