Cataract Extraction Surgery

The second assignment for my surgical class was to illustrate and design a layout for 6 steps of a surgery we observed while in the operating room. I chose to illustrate a cataract extraction with an intraocular lens implant. I thought observing eye surgeries might upset my stomach a little, but ophthamology surgeries are my favorite so far to observe.  They are easy to see because there is a TV in the room displaying the surgery, which makes observation a lot easier and they are just really interesting. I painted all the illustrations in Adobe Photoshop and created a couple diagramatic accompaniment pieces in Adobe Illusrator.
