About This Session
This symposium is sponsored by the ASCRS Glaucoma Clinical Committee.
Cataracts and cataract surgery provide us with a seemingly endless range of spectacular still and video images. This compilation of unusual images of cataract surgery, can educate and entertain viewers.
High-quality surgical videos are an excellent source for teaching and presentations. Mountable microscopes, cell phones, and photography cameras can be used. Microscopy and photography cameras are cost prohibitive, and less expensive cell phone cameras have battery, heating, and storage problems. Despite innovations, there is a need for low-cost, quality recording devices. This film shows thw RaspiCam developed using a Raspberry Pi system.
The film shows 2 ways to manage combined cataract and leucoma surgery. In the first technique, combined extracapsular cataract extraction and penetrating keratoplasty is performed. In the second technique PKP is combined with open-sky phacoemulsification cataract extraction.
There are many important aspects to being the best at anything. This film reveals secrets to achieving greatness as an ophthalmologist and provides the keys to unlock them!
This film shows the successful surgical treatment of a patient with Sturge-Weber syndrome in her only functional eye. The patient presented with a tropic corneal ulcer with the threat of perforation and had previous surgery for secondary glaucoma, aphakia, retinal detachment, and high myopia in anamnesis. A lamellar auto keratoplastika by graft was taken from the blind eye.
This film shows a series of festival-related eye trauma cases in India. The causes, prevention, and surgical pearls for management of these cases are shown.
The film shows femtosecond laser–assisted cataract surgery in a patient with a copolymer pIOL in both eyes. Air bubbles from the laser-created CCC accumulated under the pIOL and blocked the laser fragmentation in the first eye. The same procedure was performed in 2 stages in the second eye by separating the CCC stage from the others. After the CCC, the patient was moved upright. The surgeon waited for the bubbles to disappear before completing successful laser fragmentation.
