Intraocular cautery

After stretching the pupil in this one-eyed glaucoma patient with pseudoexfoliation, bleeding from the margin of the iris is visible. Dr. Fine allows the bleeding points to leak in order to precisely pinpoint the tissue in need of cauterization.

Dr. Fine, I have used a simular technique except I have used an endolaser (25 or 23 gage)to cauterize the iris margin bleeding. The endolaser can assist in making a surgical PI in neovascularized Iris tissue as well.
