Senile scleral plaques are common age-related degenerative changes quite often diagnosed on routine examination. We report a case of an elderly female, incidentally noted to have clinical findings suggestive of a senile scleral plaque. Anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) concurred with clinical findings. They are in general non-progressive or slowly progressive. Although the risk of progression is rare, considering the rare possibility of perforation, we recommend periodic review both clinically and with AS-OCT. Imaging may also be valuable in patients with senile scleral plaques undergoing scleral procedures and repeated intravitreal injections to understand the possible risks of perforation.
