Abstract: 

Purpose: To report a case of diffuse lamellar keratitis (DLK) 9.5 months after laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) associated with a corneal foreign body.
Patient and Findings: A 32-year-oldmale developed DLK two days after removal of an intraepithelial corneal foreign body 9.5 months after no complicated LASIK. DLK was eliminated after two weeks of topical steroid application and visual acuity returned to the previous level.
Conclusion: Post-LASI Keyes may develop DLK triggered by corneal foreign bodies for a long time after the procedure.
