The book is divided into seven sections and 74 chapters. Section one is presented with an introduction to phacoemulsification which describes etiology, history and IOL power calculation. Section two is on instrumentation, medication and machines for phacoemulsification. Air pump and gas-forced infusion, viscoelastics and ophthalmic viscosurgical devices in ophthalmic surgery were also covered. Steps involved in phacoemulsification such as incisions, capsulorhexis, hydrodissection and hydrodelineation were covered in the section three. Section four highlights about the MICS and phakonit. Principle, technique of phakonit for cataract, anterior chamber stability in phakonit, laser phakonit, three-port phakonit were also clearly depicted.
