Abstract

A 59-year-old woman who underwent uneventful laser in situ keratomileusis surgery 16 years ago presented with traumatic flap dislocation complicated by an epithelial ingrowth in the right eye. The epithelial ingrowth was managed with re-lifting the flap, mechanical debridement, soaking with 70.0% alcohol, and irrigation. The flap was repositioned and secured with a two-part glue technique. Serial anterior segment-optical coherence tomography demonstrated a well-attached flap with no gap or haze in the flap-stromal interface. Three weeks postoperatively, the patient returned to emmetropia and the uncorrected distance visual acuity improved to 20/20. Twelve months postoperatively, the patient's visual acuity remained 20/20, and there was no evidence of recurrent epithelial ingrowth.
