Abstract

Background: With the increasing popularity of facial filler injections, growing numbers of complications have been reported. Case Report: We present the case of a 60-year-old female with vision changes and keratitis following hyaluronic acid (HA) facial filler injections who completely recovered following hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT). Conclusion: Using HBOT to successfully treat ocular ischemia has been reported, but to our knowledge, our case is the first report of successful HBOT use for ocular ischemia and keratitis following cosmetic facial HA injection.
