Purpose : To report a case of bilateral dense ring-shaped marginal keratitis after photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK)

Case report : A 44-year-old man developed bilateral dense ring-shaped marginal keratitis after PRK. The patient had moderate to severe meibomian gland dysfunction preoperatively that was treated incompletely. He was treated with mild topical antibiotics, topical and systemic steroids and systemic doxycycline. The condition was controlled with faint peripheral scarring.

Conclusion : This case suggests the role of blepharitis and meibomian gland dysfunction in producing marginal keratitis after excimer laser for which complete preoperative treatment is recommended.
