Welcome to my operating room at our Beverly Hills surgery center. In this video we will discuss cataract surgery in an ultra myopic patient where the chosen IOL power was zero. It is critically important to implant this IOL even though it has no refractive power. We should not leave the patient aphakic! This video will explain why and give tips and pearls for success with cataract surgery for these ultra myopic patients.

Did you consider doing both eyes at the same time? Thank you for the video.
We elected to do one eye at a time, a week apart.
Dear Dr Devgan, thanks for sharing your video and great comments. Always a pleasure to watch your video and learn from you. I am thankful and glad that you are my cataractcoach!
