Weak zonules a challenge for cataract surgeons
Weak zonules can be a challenge during cataract surgery but following a few steps can help the surgeon meet that challenge, according to a speaker here.

Those weak zonules are so easy to tear; remember the posterior capsule is not taut,” David F. Chang, MD, said at Hawaiian Eye 2017. “Our goals are not only to preserve the capsule but also to avoid late bag IOL dislocation.”

First, complete the capsulorrhexis – at all costs, he said. A smaller diameter may be needed that can be enlarged later.
