The clinic reported that a laser vision correction patient was treated for a lift flap enhancement in the left eye and returned at one week post op reporting a vision change and double vision in the left eye.
The patient's visual acuity was 20/25 in the left eye.
A slit lamp evaluation diagnosed an epithelial in-growth from 4-6 o'clock position.
The patient was brought into the laser suite and the flap was lifted and the epithelial in-growth was removed.
The patient was examined the next day and the patient's visual acuity was 20/20 in the left eye.
The patient was fitted with a bandage contact lens which was removed after three days.
