Abstract Object: We reported a case that density analysis of Scheimpflug image(SD)for quantitative evaluation in a corneal siderosis patient was useful to evaluate before and after surgery that removed the metal pieces in the eye.

Methods: 57-year-old man. In 2012, he was gone to the surgery for corneal laceration in the right eye by the metal pieces in another hospital. He felt eye pain in September 2014 and he admitted Wakayama Medical University hospital on September 24. We diagnosed ocular siderosis and corneal siderosis because we admitted cornea reddish brown opacity and intraocular metal piece residence by orbital CT, and we removed. We used SD for evaluation of corneal opacity before and after surgery.

Results: Although the SD of cornea in the right eye was 94.4 before surgery, the SD was improved to 43.1 after surgery 6 months as well as improvement of corneal opacity.
