Stripping of Descemet’s membrane (DM) occurred during intraocular lens implantation in three patients. We repositioned and anchored DM with an intracameral air bubble and through-and-through No. 10-0 nylon sutures. The favorable visual results achieved in cases of large, scrolled, nonplanar detachments reinforce the advantage of surgical repositioning. Descemetopexy with reverse through-and-through sutures in a “closed system" is recommended.
