Abstract

We report the case of a 42-year-old man who experienced loss of suction during thin-flap femto-laser in situ keratomileusis, leading to a stromal step in the superior cornea where the cutting was stopped. The procedure was converted to photorefractive keratectomy 2 weeks later. Management of the loss of suction and the beneficial role played by the epithelium postoperatively on the refractive outcomes are discussed.
