Figure 2

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) of the cornea (Spectralis, Heidelberg Engineering, Heidelberg, Germany). (a) OCT scan in a plane corresponding to the upper third of the area of edema. A clear thick line of detachment is seen along the posterior (Descemets membrane and endothelium) aspect of the corena. The detached layer is not torn. (b) OCT scan in a plane corresponding to the mid-third of the area of edema. The posterior hyper-reflective line with folds into the anterior chamber corresponds to the detachment of Descemets membrane, which in the middle (arrow) is attached to the Dua’s layer (DL) that itself is separating from the posterior stroma. (c) OCT scan in a plane corresponding to the lower third of the area of edema. A posterior-curved hyper-reflective line with a central-scrolled edge, corresponding to detachment of the Descements membrane is clearly visible. Anterior to this is the distinct taut image of the detached DL. Arrows point to the two central ends of the torn Descemets membrane.
