Peeling off a Pupillary Membrane

In this complex case, there is a nearly complete pupillary membrane in an eye with a cataract and a prior corneal transplant. When we perform an intra-operative OCT scan, we can see this pupillary membrane which will need to be removed in order to perform the cataract surgery. We also need to use trypan blue dye to stain the anterior lens capsule, then remove the membrane, stretch to expand the pupil, and then perform the cataract surgery.
