Lens Snare Technique

More than a decade ago in 2009, Dr. Bhattacharya in India described a way of using a lens snare to divide a nucleus into smaller fragments and he was gracious to mention the work of Dr. Keener who described something similar in 1995. Certainly the idea of a wire loop to snare the nucleus and divide it, is not new. In the video shown here Dr. Iunusov from Kyrgyzstan shows his technique of using a lens snare to divide a dense cataract. He is a master surgeon and he does a beautiful job with this surgery.
