The Argentinian Flag Sign, a term coined by Dr. Daniel Mario Perrone, is a dreaded complication which can occur during capsulorhexis construction on a white intumescent lens. In this video, the complication occurs in a monocular (NLP in his other eye from RD) and deaf patient. Preoperatively, there was no way to communicate with the patient who prior to cataract development had relied on lip reading. Dr. Tal Raviv presents his approach in handling this complication.
