Cataract/Anterior Segment, Complications
In this 1-Minute Video, Dr. Arsham Sheybani treats a patient with severe negative dysphotopsia using in-the-bag IOL optic truncation. The patient had a toric lens and wanted to retain her 20/25 uncorrected vision. Because her condition did not improve after reverse optic capture, Dr. Sheybani cuts off the nasal portion of the lens from the capsule, which enables light to spread more diffusely. Several patients have reported resolution of symptoms after this procedure, which was published in the December 2016 issue of the Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery.
