: A 27-year-old white man presented with a sectoral band keratopathy overlying an iris melanoma. Clinically, it appeared as a 3 x 3-mm yellowish-white, granular subepithelial deposit in the inferonasal right cornea. Occasional small, round holes were scattered within the opacity. Clinical presentation of this lesion is described, and this unusual cause of band keratopathy is discussed.
