In this 1-Minute Video, Dr. Emily Witsberger presents the case of a 49-year-old man with bilateral dense cataracts and significant corneal haze in the setting of chronic keratouveitis related to an undefined inflammatory arthritis from childhood. Corneal haze precluded adequate view of the anterior segment and red reflex. Combining penetrating keratoplasty with cataract surgery was not a good option given the high risk of melting and complications from uveitis. Dr. Witsberger and colleagues elected to proceed with cataract surgery via chandelier endoillumination. The patient's vision improved from 20/100 to 20/40 through 2 years postoperatively.
