He is an expert in complex anterior segment reconstruction and he uses those skills to help restore vision for this patient with rhemuatoid arthritis related corneal disease, glaucoma, and a dense cataract. The transformation is amazing and this patient recovers excellent vision. There are many challenges in this case and they are expertly solved using clever techniques such as a light pipe to see through the cloudy cornea.
