Descemet membrane detachment (DMD) is a complication of a variety of eye procedures that can result in severe visual loss. We report a new case of the condition, in a highly myopic patient that had undergone cataract surgery, and presented a macular hemorrhage during the intervention. DMD was successfully treated with a combined technique of intracameral gas injection and transcorneal suturing. Following resolution of this complication, intraocular lens opacification was observed.
