1941: excellent resident horizontal chop

This resident surgeon presents case 250 which features an excellent phaco chop technique. This resident has obviously spent much time honing surgical techniques and does a great job. In particular, placement of the instruments is on point with the the chopper securely around the lens equator and the phaco tip placed just inside the sub-incisional capsulorhexis. This allows for a complete propagation of the initial chop which splits the nucleus into two halves instantly. The technique is so good that every chop succeeds and the case becomes naturally efficient. If you are learning chop, this case should be a benchmark as to what you can achieve with practice and dedication. I’m impressed for this anonymous resident surgeon. Keep up the great work!
