A moderately dense nuclear cataract is removed by phacoemulsification, utilizing techniques that minimize stress on the lens zonule.
A post-traumatic pupil deformation has caused disabling glare. Two months after complex
cataract-IOL surgery with suturing of a capsular tension ring to the sclera and toric IOL insertion, the pupil is
repaired (sutured iridoplasty).
Blunt trauma has caused a subluxated cataract with vitreous
prolapse. Phacoemulsification with insertion of 2 capsule tension rings, one of them sutured to the sclera, are demonstrated.
After routine phacoemulsification and IOL insertion, a spontaneous opening in the posterior capsule is observed without obvious cause. A small capsulorhexis must then be enlarged to permit reverse capture of the optic of the single piece, trifocal IOL.
