Asymptomatic irregularities on the surface of the cornea due to trapping of air bubbles beneath a contact lens. The condition is visible when the cornea is stained with fluorescein sodium but is not hazardous.

Dimple veiling is mechanically induced by a poor fitting lens, allowing bubbles to form at the lens edge (known as 'frothing'), which get sucked under the lens and land under the base curve.
