A 66-year-old Chinese man developed corneal endothelial decompensation after intraocular lens (IOL) repositioning using intracameral epinephrine was performed. The presentation was compatible with toxic endothelial cell destruction syndrome, which is caused by prolonged, direct exposure of the corneal endothelium to relatively high concentrations of intracameral epinephrine. Despite its effective and immediate mydriatic effect, intracameral epinephrine is not recommended for intraoperative… CONTINUE READING
