Two videos presents about challenge cases in cataract surgeries. The First one was male patient 15 years old with history of right eye blunt trauma since 7 years. He developed severe ocular inflammation following the trauma ending by formation of white patchy membrane on the iris and the anterior surface of the lens with 2 points of PAS. Complicated white cataract developed. Vision is HM GP GMF. IOP was 16 mmHg. Retina was in place by Ultrasound. Post surgery vision improved till 6/24. The second case is a male patient 22 years old with history of blunt trauma and with traumatic cataract since 2 years. He did cataract and implantation of a three pieces posterior chamber IOL and YAG laser posterior capsoulotomy was done. He came after two years asking for better vision and we found that he had a wrong calculated IOL. Surprisingly, we found that he needs a piggy bag IOL with-16 D. We did not found this power and we thought to use an ICL as a piggy bag solution. Post surgery vision improved till 6/24.
