Combined phacoemulsification and transpupillary removal of heavy silicone oil.

Author information

  • 1Sunderland Eye Infirmary, Sunderland, United Kingdom.


We describe a technique for heavy silicone oil removal combined with phacoemulsification and intraocular lens insertion without scleral incisions or sutures using a modified 16-gauge cannula. The technique is less invasive than other techniques for removing silicone oil and does not interfere with the uveal tract or the peripheral retina.
