AbstractWe describe a patient with multiple superior corneal infiltrates in both eyes, separated from the limbus by an intervening clear zone, that appeared 1 day after uneventful laser in situ keratomileusis. The overlying epithelium was intact, and the flap and interface were uninvolved. Based on these features, a clinical diagnosis of sterile corneal infiltrates was made and the eyes were treated with topical antibiotics and steroids. The infiltrates resolved during the ensuing weeks without corneal scarring. Good visual acuity was maintained. Recognition of this benign complication is important because aggressive corneal scrapings are not required. The infiltrates appear to be immunogenic in origin, although the exact etiopathogenesis is not clear.
