Two months postoperatively, she reported decreased visual acuity. Biomicroscopic examination revealed a corneal epithelial iron ring around the central keratectasia on both corneas. The appearance of the ring pattern was similar to the iron deposits of the Fleischer ring of keratoconus. © 2000 by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
