    Ocular coherence tomography for the diagnosis of Descemet's detachment after deep sclerectomy and resolution after intracameral air injection

    Purpose to report the use of optical coherence tomography (OCT) in a case of Descemet's membrane detachment (DMD) secondary to a nonpenetrating deep sclerectomy (NPDS) and the efficacy of intracameral air injection for management. Observations DMD was identified by anterior segment OCT (AS-OCT) in a 61-year-old male patient who was blind in the right eye and had advanced open angle glaucoma. This patient underwent NPDS in the left eye and developed localized corneal edema postoperatively. Air was injected into the anterior chamber resulting in reattachment of Descemet's membrane and resolution of corneal edema. Conclusions and Importance: This case ...
