    In this presentation, Dr. Marjan Farid discusses a 75-year-old patient with a dense brunescent cataract and history of blunt trauma OD. After performing a femtosecond laser capsulotomy and nuclear softening, she had difficulty chopping the nucleus manually and with the miLOOP. Dr. Farid noted diffuse zonular laxity, making the lens and capsule complex mobile. An expert panel and the audience consider different surgical approaches and intraocular lens fixation methods in light of these challenges.
