    Cataract/Anterior Segment

    Iris cysts occurring in the anterior chamber can arise as a result of trauma, external or iatrogenic. Larger cysts with corneal endothelial touch can eventually lead to corneal edema. The video will demonstrate the pre-operative, intraoperative and postoperative management of iris cysts with corneal edema. The preoperative evaluation includes a detailed clinical evaluation and imaging such as UBM and specular microscopy imaging whenever possible. The surgical considerations include anterior segment reconstruction and endothelial keratoplasty either single staged or sequential stage. The various case scenarios will be described in this video.
