Resident surgeons must learn to load the IOL

The surgeon must know how to do every single part of the surgery, including setting up the phaco machine and even loading the IOL into the injector. It is a disappointment to your professor if you do not understand how to perform these basic steps.

Manufacturers will send their representatives to your practice and they will teach you how to properly load the IOL into the injector and use it safely. If you incorrectly load the IOL then you risk damaging the lens, deforming the optic, inserting it upside down, or even damaging the capsular bag.

If you are an experienced surgeon who already knows how to load the IOL, then this video is not for you. This video is specifically for young surgeons who are new to cataract surgery. Please take the time to really study this video and learn how to load the IOL and then deliver it into the capsular bag.
