An 81-year-old man had femtosecond laser–assisted cataract surgery in his right eye. During the final few seconds of treatment, there was an abrupt loss of suction that resulted in inadvertent corneal application. Under the operating microscope, a central waffle pattern without corneal opacification was seen over the cornea. Conventional phacoemulsification was carried out uneventfully. The corneal laser marks did not significantly obscure the surgical view. Postoperatively, the corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA) was 6/6 at 1 day and 6/9 at 1 year. The corneal stromal scars were still present, but the patient maintained good CDVA and had no visual complaints.
