We are reporting a case of a 32-year-old female who presented with a gradual painless progressive decrease in vision in the right eye for 2 months. She underwent laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) for myopia in both eyes 8 years back. The right eye showed rolled flap margin with epithelial ingrowth extending from margin to pupillary area. Mechanical debridement was done along with flap wash and mitomycin-C and bandage contact lens placement. Visual acuity showed improvement on follow-up. However, the recurrence was noted at 6-month follow-up. This case highlights the challenges in the management of epithelial ingrowth.
