Reply: Bevel tip position and corneal damage during phacoemulsification
We thank Drs. Coelho, Raskin, and Velasco de Cruz for informing us about their study published as a letter in the journal Ophthalmology. It was our failure not to mention the results of their study in our article. However, the methods and the results are not presented in detail, making it impossible to compare their findings with ours. Therefore, we cannot explain the paradoxical outcomes observed in their study. Conducting other studies with larger cases may clarify this issue.© 2012 by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
