1535: resident capsulorhexis rescue

Learning the capsulorhexis is one of the toughest steps of cataract surgery. In this case, a resident surgeon encounters a run-out of the capsulorhexis. Look carefully at the picture here and tell me what you would do to rescue this case. If you make the wrong move the capsulorhexis edge will split towards the zonular support and it could even propagate around the equator and to the posterior capsule leading to vitreous loss and retained lens fragments. Fortunately, this talented young surgeon is able to rescue the capsulorhexis and save the case.
