The article discusses a video report on endocapsular phacoemulsification without hydrodissection of cataract in anterior capsular tear. It explains an effective technique of endocapsular phacoemulsification by reducing the risk of tear propagation. It includes autohydrodissection of the cortico-capsular connection and removal of nucleues. It mentions that the technique reduces the risk of posterior extension.
