Iris IOL Scaffold with Sub Flap Vitrectomy

  Channels: Cataract Surgery | Posted 11/26/2013

This was a referred case with a PCR and zonulodialysis in the presence of retained nucleus. I have used the IOL scaffold technique to safely emulsify nuclear fragments without the risk for fragment drop. I did have to remove a few fragments via pars plana vitrectomy but these had already fallen down at the time of primary surgery. I have performed the posterior vitrectomy by creating additional 20G sclerotomies under the scleral flap posterior to the ones meant for the glued IOL haptics. These sclerotomies are also sealed over by the flap at the end of surgery
