A 48-year-old woman had bilateral wavefront-guided laser in situ keratomileusis for myopia with IntraLase corneal flap creation. In the right eye the cavitation bubbles were observed not only in the interface between the flap and the corneal bed but also in the anterior chamber disappearing after 30 minutes. After the procedure, uncorrected visual acuity is 20/25 in both eyes; and specular microscopy shows normal hexagonal cells and density. Although no postoperative complications were observed in our case, further follow-up is needed to examine the long-term effect of this phenomenon of IntraLase.
