Cataract Surgery from the Viewpoint of a Vitreoretinal Surgeon

Klaus Lucke, MB ChB (Bremen, Germany)


The film describes the considerations a vitreo-retinal surgeon would entertain in the choice of IOL and cataract surgical technique if he were to give advice to a cataract surgeon. Aspects under review are the significance of capsular opacification, IOL material and design of optic and haptics and their effect on subsequent vitreoretinal surgery.
