Two important danger signs in traumatic cataract

Guest surgeon and expert Ashraf Armia MD shows us two very important danger signs in a traumatic cataract case: wrinkles of the anterior lens capsule and zonular dehiscence which allows the lens equator to move. Both of these signs indicate a significant area of zonular damage which will make cataract surgery more difficult.

Once these signs are seen, Dr Ashraf Armia shows us how to use capsular hooks to support the lens during phacoemulsification and then how to insert a capsular tension ring for additional security.
