In this video, Dr. Neely demonstrates a series of pediatric cataract surgeries.
- The first one is a 3-year-old child with a completely opaque lens. The capsule was stained, vitrectomy and bimanual techniques were used to aspirate the lens.
- The second patient is a 6-year-old child with traumatic cataract which has become completely white. The lens was aspirated and IOL was implanted.
- The third patient is a pseudophakic with trauma. The lens implant is in place but there has been an extensive proliferation of lens material and contraction of capsular edges that are interfering with the visual axis.
