We report a case of a patient with a corneal ulcer involving the inferonasal incision in the left eye 10 months following bilateral 8 incisional radial keratotomies, with multiple enhancement operations. The ulcer was culture positive for Pseudomonas aeruginosa and responded to fortified antibiotic therapy over a 2-week period. Radial keratotomy incisions that have undergone repeat enhancement operations may predispose patients to late-onset keratitis.
