Needling or discission of cataracts, a procedure in which the cataractous lens is broken up into smaller pieces to facilitate absorption, appeared in De Medicinae by Celsus in AD 29 (2).
All had cataractous lenses either removed surgically or absorbed spontaneously.
Nagahara, who previously developed the Phaco Chop technique for removing the cataractous lens.
25 D), are indicated for primary implantation for the visual correction of aphakia in adult patients with and without presbyopia in whom a cataractous lens has been removed by phacoemulsification and who desire near, intermediate, and distance vision with increased spectacle independence.
