The presence of pre-existing corneal opacities during cataract surgery can cause scattering of light from the operating microscope, limiting the surgeon's view of the anterior chamber (AC). In this context, combined corneal transplantation and cataract surgery may be preferential. However, patients with mild to moderate nebulae may prefer to undergo cataract surgery alone. We present a novel technique of a hands-free, chandelier, dual light endoillumination system for performing cataract surgery in cases with mild to moderate corneal opacities that allows improved intra-operative visualization.
