In this video, Dr. John Hovanesian discusses the benefits of using preloaded IOL delivery systems. These devices enable surgeons to avoid mechanical loading, cut down on surgery time and improve on reproducibility and safety IOL delivery. When using the Ultrasert (Alcon), Dr. Hovanesian suggests rotating the handpiece slightly counterclockwise after inserting the device into the eye. This ensures that the lens enters the eye flat and parallel to the iris.
