Dr. David Chang presents a pseudoexfoliation patient with a trampolining posterior capsule due to compromised zonules. The cortex is adherent to the capsule, making cortical clean-up difficult. Dr. Chang recommends filling the bag with a dispersive OVD to buffer and protect the bag during I/A. A Morcher pre-loaded CTR (FCI-Ophthalmics, Marshfield Hills, MA) is inserted to prevent capsular contraction syndrome prior to placing a 3-piece foldable IOL into the sulcus.
