The coarse, white spots on the cornea are
characteristic of Thygeson's Superficial Punctate Keratitis, especially in the presence of an otherwise quiet
eye (i.e. no "pinkeye" characteristics). The rectangular reflections in the
photos are from the light used during the examination and are not part of what
Thygeson's looks like. TSPK lesions are the tiny white dots.
