    Intraoperative assessment of corneal injuries using microscope-integrated optical coherence tomography

    A 2-year-old male child presented to the ocular emergency following penetrating injury with a metallic foreign body. Clinical examination revealed a nasal corneal perforation with iris tissue prolapse [ [Figure 1] , yellow arrow ]. To further delineate the extent of the corneal perforation and associated anterior segment changes, integrated optical coherence tomography (iOCT) was used. It showed corneal wound gaping for entire corneal thickness from the paracentral region to the periphery of the cornea. Within the gaping, prolapsing hyperreflective tissue was made out in continuity with the iris tissue onto the surface of the epithelium, suggestive of iris tissue [Figure 2] a ...
