I think the Ultra Chopper is an incredibly effective tool to deal with hard cataracts. I am convinced that this technology has come in to stay and simplify the risky surgery. I would like to have Ultra chopper in my clinic.

Apparently you can see aggressive, but any ophthalmologist that use phaco can see it.

How does the ultrachopper perform with softer nucei, it seems it could be a bit too aggresive. And will aspirating the nucleus not generate too much heat at the wound? Especially with sleevless probes?

I am amazed by doctors Escaf innovation, it is really should simplify chopping.

Excelent video. The best technique seems to me the ULTRACHOPPER from Dr. Escaf in Colombia. Fernando Yaacov Pena, MD

I agree with all the advantages of PreChopping. I have been using the Akahoshi instruments and techniques for several years and recently the Ultrachopper for those hard challenging cases. I am delighted with it.
