|Title:||Subepithelial infiltrates associated to viral keratoconjunctivitis following photorefractive keratectomy|
|Abstract:||Purpose To report three cases of adenoviral keratoconjunctivitis in patients who have undergone photorefractive keratectomy and that just developed subepithelial infiltrates. Methods Description of patients that developed postoperative adenoviral keratoconjunctivitis after photorefractive keratectomy without influence in the final visual outcome. Results All patients presented adenoviral keratoconjunctivitis 2 - 3 months after refractive surgery. They developed multiple pinpoint subepithelial infiltrates in six eyes, without haze development. The final uncorrected visual acuity was better or equal to 20/30. Conclusion Although patients undergoing photorefractive keratectomy might develop severe corneal scarring following ocular infections, such events may follow their natural evolution.|
