We report a case of interface fluid syndrome following cataract surgery after 14 years after LASIK
Seoul National University Bundang Hospital
A 62-year-old female with a history of laser in situ keratomileusis(LASIK) 14 years earlier had cataract surgery. One day postoperatively, she complained of visual blurring. Ten days later, visual blurring had not improved. Descemet membrane detachment, interface haze, fluid collection, and flap edema were observed.
We confirmed by spectral-domain anterior segment optical coherence tomography. After anterior chamber gas(C3F8, 14%) injection, visual acuity and interface fluid collection and haze improved.
This case illustrates that interface fluid syndrome can develope more than 10 years after LASIK, triggered by descemet membrane detachment after cataract surgery.
