Design: Retrospective observational case report. Methods: Seven years of clinical observation of a patient who had radial keratotomy in 1998. Results: The free-floating cyst showed no growth or untoward effects on the eye and required no treatment during the observation period. Conclusions: The long clinical course of our patient shows that epithelial inclusion cysts may be managed without treatment for many years with careful and frequent follow-up. © 2007 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
