Cornea plana is a rare congenital condition, usually occurring bilaterally, characterized by flat cornea and low refractive power. Glaucoma due to angle closure is a more common association owing to the shallow anterior chamber. We report a case of an elderly lady with bilateral cornea plana with immature cataract and open-angle glaucoma, and unilateral microcornea. The patient is visually rehabilitated. Her glaucoma is stable, maintained on a single anti-glaucoma medication. In conclusion, IOP measurement in these patients can be biased due to varied corneal morphology. However, with proper evaluation, these challenging cases can be well managed.
