1417: Morgagnian cataract with lens milk

The liquefied lens cortex in this cataract looks like milk and it seeps out of the capsular bag when the capsulorhexis is started. A classic Morgagnian cataract is when the lens cortex is so liquefied that the lens nucleus sinks to the bottom of the capsular bag due to gravitational pull. These cataracts also release a tremendous amount of “lens milk” which is the whitish liquefied lens cortex. Keep in mind that these intumescent white cataracts can have a pressurized capsular bag and there is still the risk of capsular run-out.
