Operating on a monocular patient is always stressful since we know that the stakes are higher due to the patient having just this one eye with visual potential. It is also stressful for the patients, who often are so afraid of surgery that they delay procedures for years. That is the case here: the patient was so afraid of the potential risks of surgery that she waited for years until she presented with a dense white cataract with iris synechiae. Dr. Ali Al Beshri from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia does a great job helping this patient. He releases the synechiae and performs the double capsulorhexis technique to ensure a good outcome. The result is an outstanding outcome with a happy surgeon and an amazed patient.
