Video Review: Posterior Polar Cataract Bowl Technique

Post Polar Challa

This video is from Dr. Ravi Prasad Challa from Hyderabad, India and it shows his bowl technique for performing cataract surgery for a posterior polar opacity.

These posterior polar cataracts are quite tricky and there can be complications related to posterior capsule rupture during hydro-dissection. It is often favorable to do cataract surgery earlier for these posterior polar patients while the cataract is softer.

Watch the video for my voiceover and review of this excellent surgery.

We thank Dr. Challa for his submission and we encourage all of our readers to submit a video for review (anonymous is acceptable).
