Watch—or listen—to this episode of Ophthalmology Quicksand Chronicles where our hosts are joined by the legendary Dr. Arbisser. Dr. Arbisser is not only a tremendous surgeon but her contribution to ophthalmology through education, research, and mentorship have created a lasting effect in the field of ophthalmology. Dr. Arbisser is known for teaching surgeons how to watch for the signs and avoid complications.

In this episode, we will give a glimpse into her wealth of knowledge about one of her own quicksand moments and how this surgical quicksand moment helped her evolve to become even greater. Dr. Arbisser takes us through a case of a patient with a dense cataract and astigmatism. In the blink of an eye, the imbalance of fluidics causes a wound burn. Learn how to become resilient while navigating one of the most feared complications of cataract surgery.
