Robert J. Weinstock, MD, presents the case of a dense cataract with a fibrotic membrane on the capsule. Bimanual phaco is used to sculpt the 4+ nucleus. During fragment removal, a hole in the posterior capsule is noted. However, with bimanual phaco the irrigation remains superiorly, which helps to keep the lens fragments high in the anterior capsule and in the bag.
