This is a tough case for a resident. A smaller pupil with a denser cataract and in an eye with such a short axial length that a +30.0 D IOL is needed to achieve a post-op refraction of about plano. While breaking up the cataract, a small piece of the nucleus became lodged under the iris. The decision was made to first implant the IOL and then to use the phaco probe to emulsify this last nuclear piece. What would you have done instead?
