To our knowledge, assessment of striate keratopathy (SK) is subjectively done with slit-lamp bio-microscopic examination, which is the most common practice. In this manuscript, we have reported the role of objective scheimpflug imaging modality, in decoding the healing and repair process of SK, post prolonged cataract surgery. The quantitative and qualitative framing of this pathology with hyperreflective and hyporeflective hot spots (optical blooming) has never been reported in the literature before. In addition to the imaging of the cascadic events of SK in default colour, the role of digital calipers in the measurement of corneal thickness in SK (in inverse colour) is also highlighted. This manuscript throws light on the unique features of scheimpflug imaging technology, for the possible consideration of it as a routine post-operative investigation in patients undergoing prolonged or complicated cataract surgery, in quantifying their SK.
