Limbal relaxing incision (LRI) is a minimally invasive and reliable method of astigmatism correction during cataract surgery.We report a case of keratitis associated with a limbal relaxing incision (LRI). The patient presented with progressive loss of vision with best-corrected visual acuity 20/40. Immature cataract with 1.43D against the rule astigmatism was noted. The prophylactic topical antibiotic was administered before surgery. He underwent uneventful phacoemulsification with intraocular lens implantation with LRI. On the 33rd postoperative day (POD), he presented with infiltrate along LRI site with mild iritis. Corneal scraping was positive for Staphylococcus aureus. After the treatment with topical moxifloxacin and fortified cefazolin, the infiltrate started to resolve. On the 50th POD, the corneal infection was resolved with marked thinning at LRI site.
