Dr. Masket Describes Fix To Negative Dysphotopsia

Negative dysphotopsia [1]┬áhas been addressed at EyeDocNews- it’s when patients notice a dark crescent in their peripheral visual field, due to the edge of the implant. For reasons I am still not clear, the culprit is the way the anterior capsule covers the IOL edge. Dr. Masket advises a pretty simple fix- tease the IOL off the anterior capsule with a blunt instrument, and cause reverse optic capture with the optic on top of the anterior capsule, and the haptics still in the bag. A lot easier than IOL exchange.
