    Cataract/Anterior Segment

    In this video, Dr. Francesc March de Ribot operates on a child with traumatic intumescent cataract secondary to ocular contusion. After phacoemulsification, a residual posterior capsule inflammatory membrane was removed with a posterior capsulorhexis followed by anterior vitrectomy. Viscoelastic is added to stabilize the posterior capsulorhexis followed by implantation of a single-piece IOL in the capsular bag.
