Episode 1: My Standard Technique for Cataract Extraction with Toric IOL Implantation
In our inaugural episode of Mackool Online CME, I demonstrate my standard technique for cataract removal with, in this case, implantation of a Toric IOL. Emphasis is placed on the creation and fluidics of the side port incision, proper alignment of the infusion sleeve prior to phaco, the correct foot position settings I use when chopping the nucleus and final positioning of the toric iol.
