Custard apple seeds are a natural remedy for head lice. We report a case series of three patients with ocular exposure to custard apple seeds. All three developed toxic keratopathy which was treated with topical antibiotics and soft steroids and they responded well to the treatment. This report is intended to increase the awareness in this regard.
