Cataract surgery is one of the most routine and enjoyably relaxing procedures that I enjoy performing.  This video is interesting since the patient at 3:05 in the video shows that there was a surprising amount of residual cortical material “hiding” out at the paracentesis.  I am making the case that residual lens or cortical material can mimic the sock in the dryer that hides against the side as this residual lens material did against the paracentesis site.  Fortunately, all ended up “total perfection.”
