Complete Case: Cortical Cataract

With a cortical cataract, patients are very symptomatic, particularly if the cortical opacities are within the visual axis. These tend to be younger patients and the nuclear density is less — these are relatively soft cataracts. We need to do surgery differently for these cases, with an emphasis on three steps: (1) an accurate capsulorhexis, (2) through capsular clean-up, and (3) using the supra-capsular phaco technique.
