To report the use of slit-lamp–adapted optical coherence tomography (SL-OCT
) in imaging 2 patients with Descemet membrane detachment
following anterior chamber reformation
Two patients, with leaking and overfiltering blebs, respectively, developed Descemet detachments after reformation of flat anterior chambers with viscoelastics. Slit-lamp biomicroscopy and SL-OCT
were used to diagnose and monitor posttreatment outcome.
Biomicroscopic evaluation and SL-OCT
imaging of the cornea revealed a Descemet detachment in both cases. One patient underwent intracameral air injection. Follow-up SL-OCT
imaging revealed reattachment of Descemet membrane and reduced corneal thickness.
can be used to document and follow postsurgical detachment of Descemet membrane.
