Phaco-Emulsification and Aspiration
This paper describes a method of dissolving, emulsifying and aspirating a mature cataract through a two to three mm incision. Until now, only congenital cataracts could be aspirated because of the semifluid consistency of the lens. For the past four years, I have concerned myself with the possibility of transforming the mature cataract into a solution or an emulsion, thereby making aspiration possible.
