A 40 year-old woman had laser in situ keratomileusis for --7.75 --0.75 x 20 in the right eye. Preoperative examinations, including topography, pachymetry, and intraocular pressures (IOPs), were normal, and best spectacle-corrected visual acuity (BSCVA) was 20/20 in each eye. By 4 months postoperatively, the uncorrected visual acuity and BSCVA in the right eye had decreased to 20/40. Corneal topography of that eye was consistent with ectasia. One drop per day of timolol 0.5% (Timoptic XE) was… CONTINUE READING
