IC-206: Introduction to Small-Incision Cataract Surgery for the Phaco Surgeon
Instructors: John D. Welling, MD; Jeff Pettey, MD;
Co-Instructors: Huck Holz, MD; Geoffrey C. Tabin, MD
Meeting: 2019 ASCRS Annual Meeting
This course will provide an introduction to sutureless small-incision cataract surgery (SICS) for the phaco surgeon. Worldwide, SICS is routinely performed when phacoemulsification is unavailable or not practical. Even in developed settings, SICS has largely replaced traditional ECCE as the backup plan for the phaco surgeon. Understanding how to perform this surgery competently is crucial when faced with challenging cases not safe for phaco, complications during phaco, or when involved with international ophthalmology. The SICS technique should be in every phaco surgeon’s toolbox.
