COMPLEMENTARY VIDEOS STAND OUT ON EYETUBE.NET
Arun C. Gulani, MD, shares his passion and excitement for complex cataract surgery in a standout video submitted to Eyetube.net. Dr. Gulani presents several complex cataract cases, including white cataracts and corneas with multiple RK incisions. He demonstrates his approach to carefully navigating these surgical challenges (Figure 1) (http://eyetube.net/v.asp?f=fijeri).
An innovative video submitted by Tal Raviv, MD, focuses on how to obtain similarly sized capsulorhexes with the help of the Raviv Capsulorhexis Caliper (Bausch + Lomb Storz, Rochester, NY), which can mark the capsule. As Dr. Raviv points out, the optimal capsulorhexis should be just smaller than the optic, and this new instrument can help you achieve that goal (Figure 2) (http://eyetube.net/v.asp?f=swahib).
