    This presentation features a monocular patient with uveitis and a pinpoint pupil and significant synechiae. Dr. Zaina Al-Mohtaseb discusses how after placing iris retractors and trypan blue dye, she and her resident noted that the anterior capsule appeared to be a fibrotic membrane. The audience and an expert panel consider how to proceed if the anterior capsule cannot be incised with the cystotome, as well as later in the case, what intraocular lens to use (if any).
