10b). 10c). The keratome should be fully advanced into the anterior chamber, so that the incision width is uniform along its length. This ensures that the manoeuvrability of the phaco tip and hand piece is not restricted by the internal aspect of the incision. It also reduces the risk of compression of the irrigation sleeve or iatrogenic detachment of Descemet’s membrane when introducing the phaco tip into the anterior chamber. The choice of keratome width is determined by that recommended by the manufacturer of the phaco tip and hand piece.
