    Dr. Rupert Menapace demonstrates his alternative to in-the-bag IOL implantation: buttonholing the IOL into the posterior capsule. His experience with more than 1,000 cases shows the technique prevents posterior capsular opacification and significantly reduces fibrosis. An article and a podcast are also available.
