About this book


This book, in a concise format, explains how to perform manual small incision cataract surgery. The procedure is broken down into the chief elements and described in a step by step manner. Besides the description of the procedure, the book covers indications, necessary supplies, preparation, complication management, and postoperative care. The authors are experts from around the world, and the book will be of value both for surgeons new to this technique and for experienced surgeons who need a review of the procedure. While phacoemulsification surgery has become the standard of care, understanding how to perform manual extracapsular cataract extractions competently is crucial when faced with complications during phacoemulsification surgery, when operating in a region of the world without access to phacoemulsification or femtosecond lasers, or when a manual approach may be a better choice for the patient.
