Cataract/Anterior Segment, Retina/Vitreous
Using excellent surgical skill, Dr. Adyanthaya shows how he managed a retinal detachment in a 47-year-old male with iridodialysis and anterior subcapsular cataract from a trauma suffered years earlier. The patient retained good vision until the retinal detachment. Dr. Adyanthaya starts with gentle hydrodissection and avoids rotating the nucleus. Using a horizontal chop technique, he removes the nucleus and inserts a capsular tension ring and then repairs the iris. Finally, he performs a vitrectomy and laser treatment to repair the retinal detachment. The patient recovered with 20/30 vision.
