Stripped Descemet's

This patient had a trabeculectomy and subsequent revision. The revision was performed two months prior to this video. He complained of decreased visual acuity post-operatively and was referred for evaluation. He has a totally detached Descemet’s membrane. Of note, during his trabeculectomy revision he developed a completely flat anterior chamber that was deepened with viscoelastic.
