1414: white cataract, small capsulorhexis

A small capsulorhexis can pose a big challenge during cataract surgery. Keep in mind that a typical human cataractous crystalline lens is actually quite large, measuring 9 to 10 mm in width and 4 to 5 mm in thickness (anterior to posterior). That entire lens nucleus needs to come out of the capsular bag through your capsulorhexis. Sometimes, a novice surgeon can suffer the curse of the baby rhexis, but for an experienced surgeon, even a small capsulorhexis is no problem at all. This surgery showcases a very talented Brazilian surgeon who successfully completes this complex case. You will certainly learn a lot from studying this video!
