Pseudophakic capsular block is a well recognized but uncommon postoperative complication that can easily be missed. It is difficult to glean the true incidence of this complication, although some centers have reported incidences up to 10%.
In this video we discuss the diagnosis, pathogenesis, and management of pseudophakic capsular block, which we approach through a number of illustrated case histories. High-quality clinical and intraoperative footage as well as animation is used throughout the video and serves to educate and increase awareness of a complication that is frequently missed and easily treated.
