Acute acquired comitant esotropia (AACE) is an uncommon form of strabismus in older children and adults. It is characterized by acute onset concomitant esotropia and diplopia. It can occur as a result of monocular occlusion, vision loss, physical stress, or high myopia. We describe a child with chronic vernal keratoconjunctivitis with nonhealing shield ulcer who presented with AACE due to disruption of fusion following amniotic membrane transplantation. To the best of our knowledge, AACE following amniotic membrane transplantation has not been reported till date.
