Objective: To assess if the patient has a low vision condition and to give proper management to the patient who has adherent leukoma associated with measles. Method: The patient was referred back by an ophthalmologist to the optometrist for low vision assessment and management. The demographic profile was taken along with case history taking. Subjective examinations were performed like the distance visual acuity test, subjective refraction, binocular vision test, visual field test, contrast sensitivity test, near vision test, and color vision test. After that, objective examinations like fixation, and retinoscopy was performed. Result and discussion: In the subjective refraction, the left eye had -20.00Dsph with a visual acuity of 20/70-1. Near visual acuity in the right eye was all 8M at 9cm without, with old and with new prescription. Near visual acuity on the left eye and both eyes were 3.2M at 11cm without prescription, 1.6M at 40cm with old prescription, and 2M at 40cm with new prescription. Slit lamp examination revealed corneal opacity in the right eye. Corneal Opacity is disorder of cornea in which it appears white or clouded because of the scarring of the cornea. One of the types of corneal opacity is adherent leukoma. Conclusion: The best corrected visual acuity of the patient was 20/70 which concludes that she has a low vision condition. Penetrating keratoplasty was not the perfect management for this case, but a soft contact lens only.
