Play Video

Surgery Description

In order to perform cataract surgery upon this non-English speaking patient, I first have to remove an iris-fixated anterior chamber lens implanted 11 years previous. This case highlights removal of the phakic IOL, the value of a translator during surgery and the use of intraoperative aberrometry to determine the correct IOL power.
