Abstract

The inner layer of the cornea is composed of endothelial cells that make the cornea clear [2]. Corneal trauma may result to significant ocular discomfort, visual difficulty, or even blindness. Corneal decompensation which is manifested by corneal opacity is a result of several factors like deep penetration of foreign bodies to the cornea, residues from surgical instruments, surgical trauma, or improper use of intraocular drugs [10]. This case report reviews the management options for patients with decompensated cornea, discussing clinical findings and treatment options as they relate to the case presented.
