Easy Spin Lens

Contributor: Thomas A. Oetting, MS, MD

This video also shows how a mature lens will spin within the capsular bag even without hydrodissection. As the cortical material liquifies in a mature lens the nuclear material will often freely rotate within the bag. As the lens really becomes mature the nucleus will become very dense and brown as in the case of a Morgagnian cataract and move freely around in the liquified cortical material.
