Cataracts are a very common condition whereby the lens of the eye becomes cloudy causing blurred vision. Over time, a cataract can get worse, eventually leading to blindness if untreated. Cataracts are the most common cause of blindness worldwide. Phacoemulsification surgery is the most widely used method for cataract management.
Simplified Phacoemulsification is a step by step guide to the complete technique of phacoemulsification.
Beginning with an introduction to the anatomy and development of the lens, patient selection and the phacoemulsification machine used in the procedure, the following chapters describe the complete process from anaesthesia, suturing and incision, through the different basic and technical aspects of the technique. The final section examines instruments used for phaco surgery.
Written in an easy to read, short note format, this comprehensive manual includes more than 280 full colour images and figures to enhance learning.
