3rd Annual Global Video Contest
This video depicts a case of refractive IOL exchange in a posterior capsule defect with after-cataract removal (Soemmering ring) and pupilloplasty with glued intrascleral fixation. The 19-year-old patient underwent cataract surgery at the age of 5 and is currently -12D with a prolapse of the IOL into the anterior chamber and irido-capsular adhesions. An L-shaped scleral incision is framed for the case followed by removal of the IOL and Soemmering ring along with implantation of the new IOL.
