Eye love you

      Valentine’s Day is a time to say “I love you”; however, the term “eye love you” is rarely, if ever, used. In this article, we present rare cases of ocular pathology that have adopted a heart-shaped appearance. Cupid’s cornea (Fig. 1A) demonstrates a heart-shaped endothelial fungal plaque associated with metallic foreign body. Aphrodite’s atrophy (Fig. 1B) represents a fundus autofluorescence image of geographic atrophy that demonstrated a heart-shaped hypoautofluorescence. Finally, lover’s laser (Fig. 1C) depicts barrier laser retinopexy during vitrectomy surgery that was noted to have adopted the shape of a heart.
