This video shows an eye suffering from severe pseudoexfoliation syndrome of the lens. This has caused glaucoma and will make his cataract surgery difficult. In this movie, you can see the white PXF material on the surface of the lens – it looks radially oriented because the iris rubs against the lens at this point.
PXF is an important finding as it will make cataract surgery difficult. The basement-membrane material also adheres to the lens zonules, making them prone to breakage during surgery. This could lead to zonular dehiscense, vitreous loss, or even late lens dislocation.
