The desire of every cataract surgeon using phacoemulsification techniques, is that the nucleus will not be too hard, the pupil will dilate maximally, and the patient will not have any complicating condition, such as a history of uveitis or previous ocular trauma, which will affect the outcome of the operation.
Fortunately, most cataracts are easily removed, but infrequently the ophthalmologist is faced with challenging cases. This book successfully guides us through these difficult cases.
