Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery: December 1996 - Volume 22 - Issue 10 - p 1401-1405 doi: 10.1016/S0886-3350(96)80136-2 Free Metrics Abstract The J-incision phacoemulsification technique combines a small, short (no-stitch) frown incision tunnel with a wider, longer extension tunnel pocket for easier intraocular lens implantation. The technique was used in 26 cases. Mean induced astigmatism calculated by Jaffe vector analysis was 0.77 ± 0.62 D on day 1 and 0.61 ± 0.56 D at 3 months. Using Naeser’s method (polar value), it was −0.10 ± 0.84 D and −0.25 ± 0.62 D, respectively. No wound leakage or hyphema occurred. © Williams & Wilkins 1996. All Rights Reserved.
