Title Early experiences with microphaco
Date 2004
Description Microphaco is the separation of irrigation from aspiration that allows removal of cataracts through sub-2mm incisions. While proven intraocular lenses (IOLs) are not available at this time to take advantage of the small wounds, these wounds are advantageous from a separating irrigation standpoint which makes it a useful instrument. It is also well suited to any clinical condition where there is either a minimal anteriour chamber or pressure in a swollen capsule. With approval of good IOLs that can be inserted through these small incisions, this technique could become the dominant surgical procedure in the future.
