Cataract Surgery - Graphic Video #2

My mom had her second eye cataract surgery today, and I took several short movies of the procedure. If you are squeamish, probably better to not watch! In this second video, the surgeon is vacuuming the remnants of the cloudy native lens away with the larger metal tool coming down from the top, while holding the cornea still with the small needle in the upper right corner. This is the hardest of them to watch, but still a miracle that it can be done so easily by the surgeon!
