White Cataract with Fibrotic Lens Capsule

This video was submitted by an anonymous surgeon who is attempting this case early in the course of surgical training. There is an attending physician present and scrubbed and you can see the instruction that is being given. This case has many challenges: the white cataract, the dense nucleus, and a fibrotic lens capsule. These wrinkles and lines of fibrosis of the anterior lens capsule will make the capsulorhexis creation very difficult. Special techniques will need to be used in order to complete the capsular opening.
