Abstract

We describe the use of an illuminated endochopper (a prototype instrument produced by DORC International) in the management of a posteriorly dislocated lens nucleus or lens particles. This instrument helps to divide the lens nucleus or its fragments into small pieces and thus reduces time and ultrasound energy.
