Abstract

We report a case of sterile keratitis after Ferrara intracorneal ring (Ferrara Ophthalmics) implantation into the right cornea of a keratoconus patient who also suffered from atopic blepharoconjunctivitis. The keratitis resolved within a few days after removal of the Ferrara rings. Ocular atopy with sterile keratitis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of keratitis after the insertion of intracorneal ring segments, which can be easily treated by ring removal.
