Complete Case: PXF supra-capsular chop

The previous case (reference 611) from yesterday, showed the first eye of this patient where the technique was phaco chop in the capsular bag. This video is the other eye where the technique is a supra-capsular phaco chop, performed after the nucleus is brought up and partially out of the capsular bag. Which technique do you prefer? The total time of surgery is nearly identical for the two eyes and the patient achieved the same great results for each eye. Neither eye had corneal edema and they both achieved the same post-op refractive target with resolution of inflammation and good healing.
