Instruments for phacoemulsification
(The following are instruments designed for cataract extraction and implant. Forceps, viscoelastic and sutures are not shown here.)

Disposable keratome.
This instrument is designed for clear corneal phacoemulsification. The width of the wound created will allow the entry of the phaco tip without it being too narrow or too wide.

Cystotome needle.
This needle is designed with for easy manipulation in the anterior chamber. The sharp bent tip is used to tear the anterior capsule and initiate the capsulorrhexis.

Utrata forceps.
This forceps has bent sharp tips. It can be used instead of cystotome needle for capsulorrhexis. Alternatively, it can be used to pick up the anterior capsular flap created by the cystotome needle to complete the capsulorrhexis.

Phaco probe

Phaco needle with sleeve
Phacoemulsification probe.
The phaco needle is used to emulsify the nucleus. The sleeve is placed over the needle during phacoemulsification. The sleeve is incompressible and serves as an insulator. Water which flows
between the sleeve and the needle acts as a coolant and avoids burnt to the cornea.

There are many designs of nucleus rotator.
The instrument is one of the many types of nucleus rotator. It can also be used to divide the nucleus. with the help of the phaco tip.

Simcoe irrigation-aspiration cannula.
This instrument is used to remove any cortical material left after phacoemulsification. It has two ports: one for irrigation to maintain the anterior chamber and the other for aspiration. It can also be used to remove viscoelastic material at the end of the surgery.

Folding forceps.
This instrument is designed to fold the lens at right angle and implant it into the capsular bag.

Sinskey hooks. Straight and bent.
The hook is used to dial the haptic into the capsular bag.
