    By Kenneth W. Wright, MD
    Cataract/Anterior Segment, Pediatric Ophth/Strabismus

    Dr. Ken Wright performs a lensectomy and anterior vitrectomy on an infant less than 6 months of age. IOL implantation is not advised in patients this young. Dr. Wright uses a high cutting rate and low suction to avoid traction on the capsule and vitreous.
