ICCE in Anteriorly Dislocated Crystalline Lens
Due to the lack of zonular support and presence of vitreous in the anterior chamber, Richard Schulze, Jr., MD, opts to perform an intracapsular cataract extraction for a crystalline lens that was dislocated anteriorly by blunt trauma. After the wound is enlarged with corneoscleral scissors, the lens is engaged with a lens loop and scooped out of the eye. Due to questionable visual function, the eye was left aphakic and the surgeon uses a running suture with 10-0 nylon to close the wound.
