Cataract surgery in the setting of pseudo-exfolation is particularly challenging due to the structural weakness that occurs with this disease process. The pupil dilation becomes poor and the zonular support becomes weak as the pseudo-exfoliative process continues over the years. The incidence of pseudo-exfoliation varies depending on patient population, geography, and age. It tends to be more common in older patients as well as those with Scandinavian ancestry, but it has certainly been found to varying degrees in just about all populations across the globe. These four videos highlight the range of challenges that are to be expected when performing cataract surgery on patients with pseudo-exfoliation. I am sure that you will learn a lot from this playlist.
