Bilateral deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty for the management of bilateral post-LASIK mycobacterial keratitis.
J Cataract Refract Surg. 2007 Sep; 33(9):1641-3.JC

Abstract

A 25-year-old Vietnamese man who had bilateral simultaneous laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) for moderate myopia developed bilateral Mycobacterium abscessus keratitis that was treated with intensive medical therapy, flap removal, superficial keratectomy, and, following disease progression, therapeutic deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK). To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of bilateral post-LASIK mycobacterial keratitis successfully treated with DALK.
