Abstract

For achieving the complete surgical success, the surgeon needs to prioritize and address the problem of patients by formulating the correct diagnosis and treatment plan and performing a textbook procedure. This cannot be achieved without thoroughly knowing about your operating room equipments in an appropriate manner. This chapter briefly touches upon the “basics of common equipments” in an ophthalmic operation theater.
