Vitrectorhexis and IOL Implantation
Subluxation in Marfan Syndrome
Posterior Lentiglobus and Ruptured Posterior Capsule
Cataract/Anterior Segment, Pediatric Ophth/Strabismus
Dr. M. Edward Wilson shares a case of a posterior lentiglobus with a posterior capsule that had spontaneously ruptured prior to surgery. Dr. Wilson implants a 3-piece acrylic IOL in the ciliary sulcus using membrane capture. The IOL haptics are placed in the sulcus but the optic is captured in the vitreous behind both the anterior rhexis and posterior capsule tear, securing the lens well.
