This report illustrates a retrospective case review in which extensive corneal epithelial ulceration occurred concomitantly with an internal hordeolum in the inferior forniceal conjunctiva 24 hours after an uneventful laser in situ keratomileusis.
The internal hordeolum and epithelial defect were successfully managed using a bandage soft contact lens, a course of topical dexamethasone and tobramycin, and generous lubrication.
