A case of immunological reaction to therapeutical soft contact lens after refractive surgery (Epi-Lasik), with corneal infiltrates, was presented. The lesiones were studied; the patient was clinically followed-up with the subsequent evaluation of response to treatment. The infiltrates quickly disappeared when the contact lens was removed and topical steroids-based treatment was applied. The accurate diagnosis and the adequate management of corneal infiltrates in patients wearing contact lenses is of great importance because of possible infections and permanent visual sequelae. Confocal microscopy is a very helpful study for diagnosis since it allows observing inflammatory cells and deep inflammatory process
