Ophthalmology Quicksand Chronicles Episode #5   |  MARJAN FARID: The Tale of the Tennis Ball and the Traumatic Cataract
March 2021

Listen and join us for this episode of Ophthalmology Quicksand Chronicles featuring Marjan Farid, MD. Dr. Farid will dive deep into a challenging cataract surgery, where the degree of capsular support was unknown until she was in the eye. Every step presents a new, complex challenge, starting with the very loose and dense lens. Watch and listen as Dr. Farid teaches us a novel way to perform a Yamane technique for scleral IOL fixation. The final Quicksand teaching moment occurs when she manages the decentered and tilted IOL. You won't want to miss this true test of skill and endurance.
