Dr. Aneesha Vyas | Dr. Kuntal Shah | Dr. Zeel Patel | Dr. Avani Soni


Abstract: Descemet membrane detachment is very commonly encountered, yet an under-reported complication during cataract surgery. We would like to present a case of descemet membrane detachment in a sixty five year old female, faced intra-operatively during cataract surgery. Post operatively there was non-resolving corneal edema, a descemet membrane detachment and no significant improvement in visual acuity. After failure of conservative management, we decided to intervene by injecting air in the anterior chamber. Dramatic response was noted the next day with a clearer cornea as well as improvement in visual acuity. Patient was satisfied.
