Extremely Fibrotic Capsule

  Channels: Cataract Surgery | Posted 2/27/2015

Howard Gimbel, MD, employs multiple instruments to achieve a CCC in an extremely fibrotic capsule of a pediatric patient with longstanding uveitis. The capsule resists tearing by the cystotome and forceps so Dr. Gimbel employs vitreoretinal scissors to cut through the capsule. For the best results with Trypan Blue staining, Dr. Gimbel recommends painting the capsule under OVD.
