    Anterior segment optical coherence tomographic characterisation of keratic precipitate

    Background/objectives Anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) can be used to visualise keratic precipitates (KPs) on the corneal endothelium. However, there has been no correlation between characteristic clinical appearances of KPs and AS-OCT morphology. We wished to assess the potential diagnostic role of AS-OCT in patients presenting with inflammatory eye disease and KPs. Subjects/methods Six patients with inflammatory KPs were compared to one patient with infective interface keratitis following Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty (DMEK) and one patient with endothelial pigment. AS-OCT was performed in each case and morphological features of the KPs were compared. Reflectivity of KPs was ...
