The Complex Cataract

Nicole Fram, Advanced Vision Care (Presenter)

Modern day cataract surgery is a highly successful procedure with great satisfaction rates for both the patient and surgeon. However, there are many circumstances where the type of cataract is more complex and understanding a systematic approach to tackling these cases is critical. In this lecture various forms of complex cataract case videos will be presented including, zonulopathy (traumatic, pseudoexfoliation, iatrogenic), white intumescent cataract, brunescent cataract, and intraoperative complications such as posterior capsule tears and suprachoroidal hemorrhage management. Preoperative considerations and perioperative management will be discussed as well as appropriate and safe surgical technique.
