Vertical and Horizontal Chop
Capsule Retractors and Sulcus Fixation - Case 2
Capsule Retractors and Sulcus Fixation - Case 1
This case demonstrates greater zonular weakness than in the prior video, and 4-0 Prolene iris hooks are therefore used as capsular retractors. The same principles of chopping are demonstrated. In particular, the use of dispersive OVD to block the pliant posterior capsule from trampolining to the phaco tip is demonstrated. A 3-piece acrylic IOL is implanted into the sulcus.
