We have said it many times before, but it still bears repeating: the goal of the surgery is not speed, but rather efficiency. Speed can equate to rushing and an increased risk of complications and a sub-optimal outcome. Efficiency is being minimally invasive and maximally gentle to the tissues, with no wasted movements. Watching an efficient surgery is akin to a beautifully choreographed ballet, with fluid movements and an elegance. There are ways to improve your efficiency during cataract surgery and these videos will help you achieve your goals.
