Ultra-small incision technique optimal for vision outcomes


Chennai, India-Phakonit (Phako with a Nee-dle Incision Technology) is a bimanual approach to phacoemulsification performed with a needle opening via an incision and with the phaco tip. The technique drastically reduces incision size, and with the ad-vent of ultra-small incision IOLs, it offers cataract patients the advantages of astigmatism-neutral sur-gery with return to stable vision within 4 to 5 days after surgery, said Amar Agarwal, MD, an innovator of the technique.
