Abstract Details


A 58-year-old male patient presented with bilateral visual impairment for Fuchs endothelial dystrophy (FED) and visually significant cataract after laser in situ- keratomileusis (LASIK).


Netherlands Institute for Innovative Ocular Surgery/ tertiary referral center


Phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation was carried out but visual acuity did not improve sufficiently due to an increase in central corneal thickness and the presence of a fine cleft with interface fluid between the LASIK flap and the residual stromal bed as depicted on anterior segment optical coherence tomography.


After uneventful Descemet's membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) the interface fluid increased initially but resolved spontaneously within a week while visual acuity improved rapidly.


This case demonstrates that a central LASIK-flap detachment resulting from FED may be reversible by DMEK with fast visual recovery.
