Furthermore, Rajen has performed several thousand cataract operation including complex cataract surgery (such as in patients with angle closure, pseudoexfoliation, previous glaucoma surgery) and for those patients requiring additional goniosynechiolysis (physically unblocking of the drainage angle by moving the iris away).
