Abstract

Surgical management of hard cataracts can be problematic despite improvements in phacoemulsification devices. Phaco chop, considered one of the best techniques for dealing with hard cataracts, cannot always divide the hard cataract completely. We have devised a phaco forward-chop technique that can be implemented safely and efficiently following incomplete phaco chop in a hard cataract.
