The Paracentesis Incision
The main corneal and side-port paracentesis incisions are the last modules for the Trainee to learn before combining all the cataract steps to perform whole case surgery. This chapter discusses the paracentesis incision whilst Chap. 14 deals with the main incision. Rear-ended modular training provides Trainees with the opportunity to observe many corneal side port paracentesis incisions before their first attempt. However, it is only natural to remain hesitant about holding a blade near the eye and creating an incision. The paracentesis step can be learnt as a separate step to the main incision providing the opportunity to quickly overcome this anxiety.
