Episode 22: Negative Dysphotopsia: Reverse Optic Capture Techniques

This patient has persistent negative dysphotopsia after cataract-implant surgery performed 18 months ago. A combination of techniques is used to achieve the desired reposition of the IOL optic (reverse optic capture).

Treatment of one diopter of astigmatism is also demonstrated by the placement of 2 penetrating limbal relaxing incisions (PLRIs) at the steep corneal meridian.
