    Assessment of posterior capsular integrity on optical coherence tomography

    The integrity of posterior capsule is of paramount importance to cataract surgeon. Careful preoperative assessment is routinely performed to avoid undesirable intraoperative complications. Routine slit-lamp-based assessment provides a detailed understanding of the posterior capsule, provided that lens matter is optically clear to an acceptable extent. However, the presence of opacity along the posterior capsule with a hidden defect such as posterior polar cataract may pose a challenge to decipher the intactness of the capsule. 1 Under such circumstances, noninvasive imaging modalities, such as anterior segment optical coherence tomography (OCT), is at surgeons rescue during the preoperative period. Therefore, here we ...
