(MC7) MASTERING PHACO ALTERNATIVES Thursday, 8 June 2023 • 14:00 – 15:30hrs • Hall B, Level 4, Suntec Singapore While the vast majority of cataract surgery is done using ultrasound phacoemulsification, there are times when standard phaco techniques of direct chop or stop and chop are less suited. Or there may be times when there are more efficient alternatives. This MasterClass looks at alternative techniques of removing a cataractous nucleus to widen the armamentarium you have at your disposal to deal with all types of cataracts. A stellar faculty will broaden your horizons!
