Traumatic Cataract with Dangling, Subluxated Lens

  Channels: Cataract Surgery, General | Posted 10/6/2011

Alin Stefanescu-Dima, MD, PhD, presents the surgical challenges of traumatic cataract, and innovative ways to overcome them. A 62-year-old, Caucasian female suffered a blunt ocular trauma 20 years ago, after which she developed a traumatic cataract but retained useful vision. During the last year, she complained of progressive visual deterioration and a clinical exam revealed a corticonuclear cataract, iridophacodonesis, and zonular dehiscence of more than 180 degrees.
