This volume has been revised and expanded to include descriptions and illustrations of recent machine technologies and surgical techniques. This new edition also is enhanced by improved schematic graphics, illustrations, and descriptions. In addition to examining the intricate relationship between the surgeon and the phaco machine , this book provides an in-depth analysis of the basic mechanical physics of the surgical manoeuvres and equipment as they combine to produce the best possible results. The focus on technology centres on the relationships among flow rate, rise time, vacuum, and ultrasonics, as well as many other key surgical concepts. It details such topics as : machines, including a schematic machine; ultrasound; phaco tip angles; phaco needle dimensions and shapes; the logic behind setting machine parameters; and individual phaco techniques. Current information is provided on equipment and accessories, including new pumps such as the rotary vane pump and the scroll pump. For the first time, pumps are divided into flow-based and vacuum-based categories and then compared and contrasted for a better understanding. No matter which technique is used, this book leads you trough each surgical situation with comprehensive clarity to demonstrate what the next step should be.

"I learned more about phacoemulsification surgery (in this book) than in all previous course time. The text is brilliantly illustrated. The diagrams amplify and refine the written paragraphs. This is a book that every cataract surgeon must review. This book has my highest recommendation. I wish I had written it."
— Frederick S. Brightbill, MD Archives of Ophthalmology
"The other books tell you what to do. This book tells you why and how. The illustrations are superb, demonstrating clearly how phacoemulsification works and why some maneuvers must, necessarily, work better than others. This book is critical if you want to master the art and science of phacoemulsification."— Paul S. Koch, MD, Koch Eye Associates, Warwick, RI
"This book will be utilized best by that cataract surgeon who wants to truly understand the technology that he holds in his hands. I am sure that this added level of comprehension would easily enhance any cataract surgeons capabilities."— Leonid Skorin, Jr., MD, DO, FAOCO, Journal of the Osteopathic College of Ophthalmology and Otorhinolaryngology
