Intraocular lens repositioning with anterior vitrectomy, cortical cleanup and IOL capture

In this video Dr. Michael Straiko of the Devers Eye Institute exhibits some techniques to correct a poorly centering IOL (intraocular lens). The patient was referred to him after a cataract surgery with vitreous loss. The surgeon did a great job of avoiding any nuclear loss but the IOL was poorly centered in the sulcus, there was a wick of vitreous to the main wound and some cortical material left behind causing inflammation. Following Dr Straiko’s surgery the patient went on to do very well.
