    Evaluating Depth and Width of Corneal Wounds Using Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography After Foreign Body Removal

    Purpose To determine corneal foreign body (FB) location together with corneal wound depth and width by using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) after uncomplicated FB removal. Method This prospective study was conducted with patients injured by a superficial metallic corneal FB. Under slit-lamp examination, after determining its location, the FB was removed with a 27-G needle. The depth and width of the corneal wound and the thinnest stromal thickness at the wound site were measured initially using AS-OCT. Measurements were repeated to assess the wound healing process at one week and at two months following FB removal. Results Totally ...
