    Exclusion of Traumatic Anterior Capsule Laceration Using Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography

    A woman in her 60s presented with a penetrating injury to the right cornea sustained on a plant. An examination revealed a small corneal laceration and a formed anterior chamber with minimal wound leakage. A possible defect of the anterior capsule was observed ( Figure , A). Anterior segment optical coherence tomography imaging was performed (SPECTRALIS; Heidelberg Engineering) that confirmed that the anterior capsule was intact ( Figure , B). She was treated with a bandage contact lens and observed. She remained asymptomatic with a logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution visual acuity of 0.14 log units (Snellen equivalent, 20/30 OD).
