    Dr. Michael Snyder demonstrates one type of optic capture in a series of interesting patients. He shows us how posterior continuous curivlinear capsulorhexis (PCCC) is an extremely useful tool in cases including an eye rendered aphakic and anaridic from trauma, another that had been implanted with a PMMA implant lens 25 years earlier that developed sunset syndrome, and an eye that developed UGH (uveitis-glaucoma-hyphema) syndrome and required IOL exchange.
