I recently performed a cataract surgery case using a heads-up electronic display where the computer would overlay a precise circle to serve as a guide for capsulorhexis creation. I chose a diameter of 5.3mm and when I make the capsulorhexis according to this guide, it seemed rather small, perhaps 4.8 mm or even smaller. At the end of the case you can see that there is a 6.0 mm optic in the eye but the computer still thinks that the overlay of the blue guide is 5.3 mm — and of course that does not seem right. I’m sure these devices will get better with time and perhaps with more input data, but even then, trust your own judgment the most.
We are having another video contest for young surgeons in training. Full details are available at this link here. Your video can be anything original, maximum length of 3 minutes, do a voiceover, do not use copyrighted music in the background, make sure it is actual high definition and in focus, and only one video per surgeon. Deadline for submission is June 1, 2023 and the video competition will be hosted live on June 15, 2023. Full details by clicking the pic below.
