Complete Case: Floppy Iris & Loose Zonules

There is a benefit to watching a video of a complete cataract case, from start to finish. This is particularly true for our less experienced surgeons (less than 1,000 cataract surgeries completed), but it also holds true for highly experienced cataract specialists. I enjoy watching my colleagues perform surgery because I can always pick up a nuance or two that can help refine my surgical process.

This case is interesting because the patient takes tamsulosin (Flomax) which is causing a floppy iris syndrome, plus when we start the capsulorhexis we note extensive wrinkling of the anterior lens capsule which indicates zonular weakness.
