Descement's membrane detachment (DMD) is separation of Descemet's membrane (DM) from the overlying stroma. It is manifested as corneal oedema at the site of detachment. With the rising number of phacoemulsification in the world, the DMD becomes an important complication that may require additional surgical intervention leading to an increase in economic as well as a social burden on the patient and hospital. Descemet's membrane detachment(DMD) is an uncommon complication of cataract surgery that may lead to corneal scarring and poor post-op vision gain. Till now, there is no standardized protocol for the management of DMD. Various authors have tried to classify DMD. Newer techniques such as AS-OCT, Schiemflug imaging, etc have helped in the early detection of DMD chance improving the prognosis.
