If you have a patient population where you frequently see white cataracts, these posts are dedicated to you. These patients are relatively common around the world and every cataract surgeon will need to know how to successfully manage these tricky cases. In Los Angeles, I do surgery for white cataracts in both our private surgery center in Beverly Hills as well as in our public county hospital with charity patients.
