Category: Cataract Complications
Cataract surgery is challenging in the setting of traumatic anterior capsule rupture. This series illustrates an approach to this complication. We show how to effectively use a ruptured capsular bag to perform endocapsular IOL implantation and how to form the capsulorrhexis despite rupture. Mastering these techniques can allow for less invasive IOL fixation and avoid further vitreoretinal surgery.
