Edematous thickening of the corneal stroma due to endothelial dysfunction can shift Descemet’s membrane posteriorly and cause a surplus of Descemet’s membrane, also known as Descemet’s fold. Postoperative transient corneal enema and Descemet’s fold are major complications of phacoemulsification surgery; they usually appear during the early postoperative period and rarely occur intraoperatively. Here, we present an intraoperative occurrence of Descemet’s fold which spread rapidly during corneal hydration in phacoemulsification surgery and was documented using swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) imaging for the first time.
