Are You Experiencing Difficulties With Retinal Surgery on Patient With Restor Intraocular Lens?

September 17, 2009

I just operated on Friday on a patient with macular pucker.  Nothing special pre-operatively.  Very easy to see via slit lamp with the aid of a 90D lens.  I have been down this path many times. In the OR, I couldn’t focus easily on the ERM.  Patient had a Restor® intraocular lens with an open posterior capsule.  I don’t know why this was a problem.  Was it a problem with me (accomodation?) or a problem with the lens?

I welcome any comments.

    interesting- never heard of that. cant be the accomodation if youre using a microscope! must be the restor lens. were you able to complete the case without incident?
    you should bring this up with your retina coleagues- curious if they have similar problem
