Timely Lens Dislocation

  Channels: Retina | Posted 5/4/2012

Ozcan Kayikcioglu, MD, presents a patient with proliferative diabetic retinopathy that undergoes a 23-gauge pars plana vitrectomy and membranectomy. A sharp instrument comes in contact with the sclerotic lens, necessitating a lens removal. The nucleus drops in early stages of phacoemulsification. Since the cannulas are already in place, the surgeon is able to remove the lens with a cutter. Endolaser is performed to treat an iatrogenic retinal tear and an IOL is placed in the ciliary sulcus.
