    Cataract/Anterior Segment

    In this segment from Dr. Will Dean's Sutureless ECCE video program, the surgeon demonstrates the creation of a frown-shaped incision and a side-port paracentesis using a 45-degree blade. A scleral tunnel is then fashioned with a crescent blade. The video series documents step-by-step techniques for sutureless extracapsular cataract extraction.
