Dr. Priya Narang demonstrates a simplified method of haptic externalization that combines the 'no assistant' and 'handshake' techniques. In the 'no assistant' technique, the leading haptic remains externalized without requiring an assistant to hold it and prevent it from slipping back into the eye.
