Course Description
A stepwise game plan for converting to phaco chop will be presented, along with phacodynamic principles for selecting machine parameters and instrumentation. Attendees will don stereo glasses to view 3-D high-definition videos that uniquely illustrate the instrument positioning for both horizontal and vertical chopping. Pearls for brunescent nuclei and complicated cases will be covered.

Educational Objective
Attendees will learn both variations of the phaco chop technique, their advantages in complicated cases, the instrumentation, machine parameters, and transition steps involved, and common mistakes. Pearls and strategies for learning these techniques will be presented based upon the instructors' experience in teaching residents.
