Abstract :

Introduction: Posterior polar cataract often causes significant stress on cataract surgeons.
Objective: To report the effectiveness of envelope capsulotomy and hydro-dissection with Simcoe cannula in posterior polar cataract.
Main outcome measures: The main outcome measures include PCR rate.
Methods & Results: Fifty eyes with posterior polar cataract underwent surgery using the above mentioned technique. The surgical technique will be demonstrated and the other techniques of capsulotomy will be discussed.
Conclusion: The use of envelope capsulotomy and hydro-dissection with a Simcoe cannula results in a desired outcome in cases of posterior polar cataract in MSICS.
