Cataract surgery is the most common eye surgery performed and demands extraordinary skills and patience of the surgeon.

The book covers topics such as phaco methods and device settings, positioning, microscope, phacodynamics, corneal wounds, capsulorhexis, hydrodissection or hydrodelineation, grooving, divide and conquer, chip and flip, stop and chop, phaco chop, cortex removal, insertion of the IOL and decision taking in cataract operations. Straight forward points, short and concise sentences and few very important aspects related to cataract surgery, make this book compulsory, to be chosen by beginners.
