    In this presentation, experts discuss what to do when zonulopathy appears during capsulorrhexis. Dr. Thomas Oetting shares a case in which significant diffuse zonulopathy became apparent in an eye with an ultrabrunescent lens. The panel and audience consider next steps when zonulopathy is recognized at an early stage: for example, converting to a manual extracapsular cataract extraction or cautiously beginning phacoemulsification. As the case progresses, the group also discusses the miLOOP device and challenges with dense lenses.
