Abstract

Fungal keratitis following laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is extremely rare. Except in cases that follow trauma, the source of fungal organisms is unknown in published reports. We report a case of keratitis following LASIK that could be directly traced to a fungal skin infection of the patient's pet cat.
