This video includes slow motion video at half-speed and then at quarter-speed to review the single plane incision. The goal is to create an incision that allows good access during surgery and then seals well with a minimal astigmatic effect. This single plane produces symmetry between the roof and floor of the incision and provides a good tunnel length. Note that the incision is also square / rectangular without the dreaded chevron appearance at the endothelial entry point. We also barely nick the limbal vessels in order to provide long-term permanent closure. If you are still learning to perfect your incisions, this video is worth studying in detail.
