Abstract

Here, we report a technique for performing phacoemulsification during phacovitrectomy in patients with dense vitreous hemorrhage that obscures lens visibility. By injecting triamcinolone acetonide into the vitreous cavity, the lens can be transilluminated by the microscope light source, similar to conventional cataract surgery. Our results suggest that this technique may improve lens visibility, thereby increasing the chances of a safe surgical outcome.
