This film shows a different cataract technique in which the lens is disassembled into 3 fragments within a few seconds and without the use of additional instrumentation. No ultrasonic energy or vacuum is used. This technique minimizes ultrasonic energy use, increases safety, and increases surgical efficiency. It can be used for a wide variety of lens densities—soft, 1+, 2+, and 3+— and small pupils.
