Anterior segment optical coherence tomography of intrastromal corneal cysts
We report a case of six-year-old boy who presented with a progressive intracorneal cyst in the left eye. Anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) was performed, and it showed the location of the cyst in the corneal stroma. Its dimension was measured to be 7.09 Å~ 2.12 mm. The cyst aspiration was successfully done. AS-OCT helped in the management and follow-up of the condition.
