Challenges during Phacoemulsification – Cornea
available on-demand on eLOS
This course walks participants through the various structures and functions of the cornea as well as important factors to take into account when doing a preoperative corneal examination. The subsequent sections will assist everyone in being fully equipped to deal with a variety of difficult problems, such as endothelial dystrophy, corneal opacity, pterygium, wound burn, radial keratotomy, penetrating keratoplasty, Descemet’s membrane detachment, and corneal wound burn. This course explains proper visualization approach, OVD usage, the significance of good parameter selection, and plane of emulsification when managing impaired cornea cases. This training will prepare everyone for dealing with a compromised cornea scenario and empower them to undertake such situation with great confidence
