Cathleen M. McCabe, MD, presents a 62 year-old patient who suffered a traumatic cataract as a child that had gradually worsened in recent years. After performing a vitrectomy, the vitrector tip is used to prolapse the capsule and black cataract into the anterior chamber. A miLoop device (Iantech) is introduced into the eye and the nitinol loop is retracted to bisect the lens. After the nuclear fragments were then removed through the scleral tunnel with a lens loop, an Akreos AO (Bausch + Lomb) was sutured in the eye with gore-tex.
