Phakonit has undergone a tremendous transformation with the advent of the cold phaco machines, better irrigating choppers and the air pump. With the advent of the rollable IOL's the surgeon is able to really take advantage of Phakonit so that the patient can benefit the most. Topographic analysis of Phakonit incisions shows a tremendous decrease in astigmatism and an early stability of refraction as compared to a normal Phako incision. This technique which is India's gift to the world has brought cataract surgery to a new dimension. The course will cover for the beginner to the advanced Phakonit surgeon everything they wanted to know on Phakonit but were afraid to ask.
