Surgery: Congenital Total Cataract

This video demonstrates a congenital cataract surgery in a 4-year-old boy who presented with total cataract and a slightly swollen lens. After initial bimanual aspiration of cortex, the lens nucleus was more dense than expected and phacoemulsification was performed to remove the remaining lens matter. A manual tear primary posterior capsulotomy was performed and an IOL was inserted … Read more

Surgery: Implantation of XEN® Gel Stent

We have found placing the XEN® Gel Stent either supra-Tenon’s or subconjunctival when possible results in further IOP-lowering. This video demonstrates pearls to achieve this placement, which involves tilting up of the needle as it exits sclera to ensure that it gets through Tenon’s and under conjunctiva as much as possible. Surgeon: Dr. Ike K. … Read more
