Role of Anterior segment OCT in cases of Post Cataract Surgery Corneal Edema
Keywords:Corneal Edema, Descemet Membrane, Phacoemulsification
Post cataract surgery corneal edema is a disturbing complication both for the patient and the surgeon. We present a case of post cataract surgery corneal edema.A 61 year old lady developed right corneal edema after an uneventful phacoemulsification. Initially diagnosis of surgery induced corneal endothelial decompensation was made. Anterior segment OCT was performed that revealed detached Descemet membrane. Intraocular SF6 gas injection successfully treated the case. Anterior segment OCT is a valuable tool in cases of post cataract surgery corneal edema to establish a diagnosis.
