We present 2 patients with late traumatic laser in situ keratomileusis flap dislocation 8 months and 17 months after surgery. One patient had a sharp trauma that caused a partial laceration and the second patient had a blunt trauma that caused a dislocation of the flap. The corneas were examined with slitlamp microscopy, computed corneal topography, and confocal microscopy. One flap was repositioned surgically; the other was treated conservatively with an eye patch.
