Recurrence of keratitis after excimer laser keratectomy.

We report 3 patients who experienced a recurrence of nonherpetic keratitis after excimer laser photorefractive surgery. Two patients had a history of culture-positive adenoviral keratoconjunctivitis, and 1 had a clinical diagnosis of Thygeson's superficial punctate keratitis (SPK) prior to excimer laser surgery. Patients should be informed that excimer laser surgery may contribute to a recurrence of keratitis and Thygeson's SPK. Recognition and appropriate treatment can result in resolution and maintenance of a good refractive outcome.
