Fleck-like deposits and swept source optical coherence tomography characteristics in a case of confirmed ocular chalcosis.Indian J Ophthalmol. 2018 Nov; 66(11):1640-1642.IJ
A 36-year-old male presented with history of injury in the left eye 3 years back with a copper wire. Examination revealed the presence of typical sunflower cataract with golden yellow deposits over the anterior lens capsule with dull glow and old vitreous hemorrhage. Non-contrast computerized tomography revealed retained intraocular foreign body in the pars plana region. The patient underwent phacoemulsification with intraocular lens implantation followed by pars plana vitrectomy and foreign body removal. Intraoperatively, fleck-like deposits were noted on the retinal surface in a circinate manner around the fovea and also over mid-peripheral retina. Postoperative swept source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) was performed to document the location of deposits and their characteristics. Limited literature exists regarding SS-OCT characteristics of ocular chalcosis.
