We present the case of a 50-year-old man with keratoconus in both eyes. While the inferior intrastromal corneal ring segment (ICRS) was being implanted in the right eye, the segment dissected the corneal stroma and moved toward the limbus. The segment was redirected to its initial position and secured by a 10-0 nylon suture, which was removed 2 weeks later. To our knowledge, this is the first report of intraoperative corneal stroma dissection by an ICRS and its management.
