Retina TodayPearls for the Yamane Technique

This technique for placing an IOL without capsular support has a steep learning curve, but once mastered, it should take only 15 to 20 minutes to complete. The most difficult aspects of this technique are measuring for needle insertion sites and lacing the trailing haptic into the needle lumen. Lacing the trailing haptic is probably the most difficult intraocular maneuver. This is a difficult task, but with the right approach and equipment, unnecessary complications can be avoided.
