TRANSLENTICULAR HYDRODISSECTION IN LASER CATARACT SURGERY
By Sheraz Daya, MD; and Marcela Espinosa, MD
This video describes a technique to safely hydrodissect and fragment the lens nucleus with the Victus Femtosecond Laser (Bausch + Lomb). The technique involves injecting fluid though a lens fragmentation incision.
WORTZ FEMTO VISCO DISSECTOR CANNULA
By Gary Wortz, MD
This video demonstrates the first use of the Wortz Femto Visco Dissector Cannula (Bausch + Lomb Storz). Dr. Wortz uses the LenSx Laser (Alcon) to create the corneal wounds and capsulorrhexis and to chop the lens. Rather than open the wounds with a spatula, he uses a viscoelastic cannula that is tapered at the end to allow easy entry through corneal wounds created with a femtosecond laser. Dr. Wortz’s cannula also allows the surgeon to fill the anterior chamber with ophthalmic viscosurgical device in the same maneuver.
EASY PHACO: CONQUERING NEW HEIGHTS
By Suhas Haldipurkar, MD
Dr. Haldipurkar’s video demonstrates the easyTip (Oertli), which is based on the simple concept of enhanced infusion and restricted outflow with a bulbous tip and higher fluidics to achieve a desired benefit during phacoemulsification. Dr. Haldipurkar uses easyTip technology in eyes with soft, hard, and extremely hard nuclei.
