Episode 24: Shallow Chamber and Convex Anterior Lens Capsule
An eye with a shallow anterior chamber is at increased risk for endothelial cell loss during phacoemulsification. A convex anterior capsule increases the risk of anterior capsulotomy "runout". In this case I discuss and demonstrate techniques that protect the endothelium and prevent capsulorhexis problems in these eyes.
