While microspherophakia is a relatively rare condition, we have featured it here previously including a resident case. This case is even more challenging since the cataract is very dense and it has dislocated or subluxed into the vitreous cavity. Our guest surgeon performs a pars plana vitrectomy and then extracts the cataract. When it comes time for the IOL, what would you choose? Our surgeon in this video makes a great choice and the patient has a good visual outcome.
