    agreed. im pretty sure i read it in eyenet last month.

  • Do you have reference to this article? If this is the same article, I remember being convinced at the time with their imaging in their case report. Although it is trickier to perform ECP with the lens in place, I think that in some situations it may prove to be valuable treatment option if the only other alternative is to remove a clear lens.
