1498: Wong hydration pocket incision

The Wong hydration pocket incision is an innovative way to help seal a corneal phaco incision. It involves creating a pocket (partial thickness incision) above the main (penetrating) phaco incision. This pocket can then be hydrated at the end of the surgery to place downward pressure on the phaco incision to keep it sealed. By the time the pocket has absorbed the balanced salt solution, the corneal endothelial pump function will be sufficient to keep the phaco incision sealed. Our guest surgeon demonstrates that very nicely and performs a great cataract surgery considering that he is at the start of his surgical career.
