This patient has a dense cataract — the kind where the posterior plate of the nucleus is tough and fibrous making nucleus division challenging. I have showed videos where I like to place the chopper behind the posterior surface of the nucleus to trap it and then chop it. Our guest surgeon shows us how much effort it is to chop this type of cataract. The technique is excellent and there are so many great pearls to learn from this video.
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.
