About Ophthalmology Quicksand Chronicles

Patients want the best outcome from their eye surgery. Surgeons strive to meet these expectations, but what happens when the case is not going as planned?

This is the Ophthalmology Quicksand Chronicles hosted by cataract surgeons Nicole Fram, MD, and Elizabeth Yeu, MD. Dr. Fram and Dr. Yeu explore pivotal moments that every surgeon will inevitably encounter. Every time you think you have it figured out, the eyeball humbles you. In each episode, Dr. Fram and Dr. Yeu host an expert in the field and delve into these “quicksand” moments; more specifically, the surgeons reflect on the nuances and lessons learned from a surgical experience that ultimately helped them evolve as surgeons.


Watch this episode of Ophthalmology Quicksand Chronicles, which occurred in person at the 2022 Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. Here our hosts were joined by an expert panel of surgeons—Lisa Arbisser, MD, Eva Kim, MD, and Terry Kim, MD. Each panelist shared one of their own surgical quicksand experiences and how they were able to navigate through this challenge, learning to evolve from the moment. Our panelists showcased a range of cases from routine cataract surgery gone wrong to toric ICL surgery with post-operative issues to a case of involving a handicapped patient with dense brunescent cataracts. Tune in now to watch this new episode that was recorded live at the Annual Meeting!
