    In this video from Dr. Osher's Video Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, Dr. Ahmed ElKateb presents a rare mishap during lens injection: the trailing haptic of 1-piece hydrophobic acrylic IOL trapped in the plunger. After failing to dislodge the haptic with a Sinskey hook, Dr. ElKateb uses an MVR blade to split the cartridge and free the lens.
