Three years after uneventful excimer laser photorefractive keratectomy in both eyes, a 34-year-old man sustained a perforating injury in the left eye. The severe injury, followed by endophthalmitis and retinal detachment, necessitated vitrectomy, lensectomy, and an internal tamponade with silicone oil. One month after the accident and operations, disk-shaped corneal edema corresponding to the laser treatment zone appeared. The edematous region showed a circular, ring-like epithelial thickening at the borders and central corneal epithelial erosion. The anterior stroma developed a central opacity that was separated by a clear rim from the developing silicone-oil keratopathy with the typical band shape.
