ICCE in Anteriorly Dislocated Crystalline Lens

  Channels: Cataract Surgery, General | Posted 7/13/2011

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.
