Abstract Details


To evaluate clinical findings of decemet’s membrane tear in an adult due to forceps injury.


A 46-year-old woman presented to Akdeniz University Hospital with low visual acuity in her left eye.


Detailed ophthalmological examination, corneal topography with Pentacam were performed.


Patient’s left eye BCVA was 20/125 and the refraction error was -1.00(-5.75 ax 170). Decemet’s membrane tear were clearly seen in slit-lamb biomicroscopy. Irregular myopic astigmatism was detected in corneal topography. Central corneal thickness was 513 ṁm. The rest of the ophthalmic examination was noncontributory. The only diagnostic data was forceps injury.


Although corneal injury with forceps during the delivery was rarely mentioned complication, it should be considered in irregular astigmatism and decemet’s membrane tear without any trauma or operation history.
