Abstract

Since the introduction and development of the operating microscope by Harms in 1953 (1) and Barraquer in 1956 (2) an array of surgical tools, equipment, and technology has been added to the ophthalmic armamentarium. Examples include the microinstrumentation developed for cataract surgery (particularly for extracapsular extraction and intraocular lens techniques) and, importantly, microinstrumentation for surgical manipulation and management of the vitreous.
