Phaco Philosophy – Finding the Right Path (P2)

CSCRS – A joint symposium of the APACRS, ASCRS & ESCRS
date-02Friday, 2 June 2017
time10:30 – 12:30hrs
locationHangzhou Hall 1

The ongoing discussion on the pros and cons of femtosecond laser-assisted vs. standard phaco has occupied the podium in recent years. In any case, the two procedures still require exquisite skill and an understanding of phaco dynamics, regardless of whether the rhexis has been created with a laser or manually.

Experts representing the major regional cataract and refractive surgery societies of the Combined Symposium of Cataract and Refractive Societies will discuss the important facets of phaco dynamics & fluidics that are crucial to safe and effective cataract surgery.
