1. Repair of Descemet Membrane Detachments With the Assistance of Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography

    Extensive Descemet membrane detachment (DMD) is a rare complication of intraocular surgery that can lead to corneal decompensation.1 Although DMD may resolve spontaneously, surgical repair frequently is required. The diagnosis may be difficult because corneal edema can obscure visualization of the Descemet membrane (DM). Ultrasonographic biomicroscopy (UBM) has been the standard for imaging DMD in patients with corneal opacity.2 Anterior segment optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a new technique for imaging anterior segment anatomy to evaluate narrow angles, flaps created with laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis, and corneas after DM-stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty.3 We report 2 cases of ...
