This video demonstrates the screwdriver test which is used to determine if the cornea should be debrided in cases of epithelial basement membrane dystrophy (EBMD) or recurrent corneal erosion (RCE) with intact epithelium. The procedure is done under the slit lamp by simply touch and twist a weck-cel sponge against the suspected areas that may blister easily and hence, debridement is indicated.
