Abstract

The presence of interface debris is commonly reported in patients having undergone LASIK refractive surgery. The patient described here had numerous large particles believed to be plastic and metal artefacts from the surgery at the level of the stroma/flap interface, along with a corneal scar consistent with a foreign body injury. The aetiology and possible sequelae of the particles and scar are discussed.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
