We present a case involving a serious systemic cause of visual symptoms after successful bilateral laser in situ keratomileusis. There were no signs in the anterior segment to explain the visual symptoms. Ancillary tests and investigations confirmed a pituitary tumor, which was removed. We recommend comprehensive ophthalmological examination and full investigation of symptoms in all patients before and after laser treatment.
