The article reports that the discovery of foldable intraocular lenses (IOLs) has pushed phacoemulsification into the mainstream of cataract surgery that allowed for small incisions and minimized complications. It is cited that smaller incisions have become the norm for crystalline lens removal and IOL insertion. Among the IOL injection systems include the Unfolder Series, Monarch III IOL delivery system and SofPort Advanced Optics Lens Insertion System with Easy-Load inserter. It reveals the preferred IOL injection systems of three cataract surgeons.
