White cataracts exert a high pressure from within the capsular bag. Elevated intra-lenticular pressure can increase the risk of a capsular tear-out. Decompression of the lens with positive AC pressure can reduce this risk. This film describes a new technique of decompression of a white cataract with irrigation and 25G needle aspiration using the bimanual setup of the phacoemulsification machine.
