Abstract

Ophthalmologists usually use slit lamp biomicroscopy to look for Kayser-Fleischer rings in Wilson’s disease; anterior segment optical coherence tomography is a new alternative to identify the characteristic hyper-reflective layer in the deep corneal periphery at the level of Descemet’s membrane. This method allows non-ophthalmologists to look for and to quantify Kayser-Fleischer rings.
