Clear Corneal Incision

Clear Corneal Incision 

  • Currently the most popular entrance site for phacoemulsification cataract surgeries and intraocular lens implantations.
  • These clear corneal wounds usually are self-sealing, and do not induce astigmatism as they heal.
  • They have minimal risk of bleeding.
  • May be complicated with Descemet's membrane stripping or tears.
