This film shows multiple examples of cataract surgery in eyes with varying numbers of radial keratotomy (RK) incisions. Surgical techniques unique to this situation are demonstrated, including careful clear corneal incisions created between RK incisions; scleral tunnel creation to avoid splaying open RK incisions; minimal movement of the phacoemulsification handpiece to avoid torque on adjacent RK incisions; proper wound closure; and potential complications.
