CASE PRESENTATION
A 23-year-old male presented for a LASIK evaluation in October 2000. Preoperatively, he had manifest refractions of -5.00 +0.75 X 90 OD and -5.25 +0.75 X 85 OS, and his pachymetry measurements were 525 ?m OD and 520 ?m OS. Computed topography was normal (Figure 1). LASIK surgery was uneventful.

The patient's last follow-up visit to your practice occurred in 2002. Computed topography was normal. His UCVA measured 20/15 OU. He had manifest refractions of plano +0.25 X 140 = 20/15 OD and -0.25 D spherical equivalent for a visual acuity of 20/15 OS.

In 2007, the patient returned with a complaint of decreasing vision in his right eye during the past several months. His UCVA measured 20/70 OD, and he had a manifest refraction of -4.25 +3.50 X 142 OD. The UCVA and manifest refraction for his left eye were unchanged. Figure 2 shows the results of computed topography.

These cases of late onset LASIK INDUCED ECTASIA are very disturbing. I met an eye doctor this week who does not perform LASIK who told me that he has a patient who had LASIK 10 years ago and has recently developed ectasia.
