Project Description

The purpose of this piece is to provide an accurate, instructional poster of the steps involved in cataract surgery with phacoemulsification and intraocular lens insertion for an audience of ophthalmology residents. Green didactic coloring was used within the cataract to pull the viewer’s eye towards the center of focus. This illustration was developed after multiple live viewings of the procedure and conferring with the attending ophthalmologist for accuracy.
