Sutureless extra-capsular cataract extraction (SECCE)

Sutureless Extra-capsular Cataract Extraction (SECCE)

This instructional video with slides illustrates the cataract surgery technique of SECCE in a stepwise fashion, starting with initial preparation of the eye. Further general surgical tips are provided and there is a section on possible surgical complications, and how to handle them.

The video is aimed at trainee residents, practicing ophthalmologists and cataract surgeons especially those working in developing countries. It aims to help them understand the stepwise approach to learning SECCE, and grasp the details of each stage of the procedure in order to thus augment, but not replace, practical surgical training in the technique.
