A case of unilateral interface keratitis due to Mycobacterium fortuitum following simultaneous bilateral LASIK procedure for low myopia is reported. Excimer phototherapeutic keratectomy was performed to the stromal bed to reduce the infective load. Intensive topical therapy with topical amikacin and ciprofloxacin resulted in resolution of the keratitis.
