    Annual Meeting 2013
    Cataract/Anterior Segment

    In this segment of the Spotlight on Cataract Complications, Dr. Geoff Tabin presents a case of Argentine flag--the rhexis tearing to to the periphery of each side of the anterior capsule--in a patient with a hypermature white cataract. As the nucleus is dense and the zonules weak, Dr. Tabin converts to a sutureless extracapulsar cataract extraction (ECCE) and implants a one-piece PMMA IOL behind the nucleus to act as a supporting lens glide for extracting the nucleus.

    The video symposium features 18 cataract experts who present their most challenging and unique surgical complications and the lessons they learned.
