Sulcus Implantation Following Posterior Capsular Tear

  Channels: Cataract Surgery, Refractive | Posted 11/3/2009

In this case, Dr. Gary Hirshfield removes an unstable in-the-bag IOL following a posterior capsular rent and replaces it with a sulcus IOL. The Akreos IOL is cut and extricated with the Mackool Lens Removal System. When the sulcus lens in inserted, the nasal haptic goes under the anterior capsule. After the lens is maneuvered into place with the aid of a kuglen hook and plenty of OVD, Kenalog is introduced to confirm the absence of vitreous.
