Phaco Chop

  Channels: Cataract Surgery | Posted 11/27/2013

Efficient removal of the nucleus is essential to minimizing corneal edema and delivering excellent early visual outcomes. To segment the nucleus, I prefer to use a horizontal phaco chop technique. This technique provides me the ability to break up and to remove the nucleus efficiently with minimal phaco energy.
