The purpose is to present the outcomes of anterior lamellar keratoplasty for a case of post-laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) epithelial ingrowth. A 40-year-old male patient presented with epithelial ingrowth 14 years after primary LASIK with a microkeratome blade in the right eye following trauma. Multiple stromal bed washing was done over a period of 3 years, but recurrence of epithelial ingrowth was seen every time. Femtosecond laser-assisted anterior lamellar keratoplasty was performed in the right eye. Twelve months after the procedure, the patient’s corrected distance visual acuity improved to 6/9, and no recurrence was noted. Femtosecond laser-assisted anterior lamellar keratoplasty is an effective treatment modality in cases of recurrent recalcitrant epithelial ingrowth seen after LASIK.
