    Sutureless large-incision manual cataract extraction (SLIMCE) is a modified manual cataract extraction technique characterized by low cost and good results. With minimal surgically induced endothelial cell loss and astigmatism, it is easy to perform and learn about. SLIMCE is particularly good for clearing cataract blindness in developing countries and tackling hard cataracts in developed places.
