A 50-year-old female developed significant aggressive epithelial ingrowth after a minor corneal abrasion to her left eye, which required surgical removal. On presentation, she exhibited no signs of corneal flap manipulation or displacement. This report exemplifies the latest presentation of traumatic epithelial ingrowth from initial LASIK surgery and the only case without flap displacement, emphasizing the need for close follow-up and examination of all LASIK patients even after minor trauma.
