Course Description



This course on the history of phacoemulsification is intended as background context for today’s trainee surgeons.

The course walks through the journey from an exclusively manual intervention to a procedure performed using specialist machines designed for the extraction of the cataract,  and the replacement of the natural lens with a prosthesis capable of restoring high quality vision which is implanted through very small incisions.
