    How advances in phaco benefit glaucoma surgery


    Advances in phacoemulsification are creating new opportunities for glaucoma surgery, especially in developing countries, according to Alan S. Crandall, MD.

    Dr. Crandall, professor of ophthalmology at the University of Utah, gave an overview of the relationship between the two types of procedure in the Shaffer-Hetherington-Hoskins Lecture at the Glaucoma 360 Annual Glaucoma Symposium.

    Bringing the two procedures together can particularly benefit people in the developing world, said Dr. Crandall, who frequently travels abroad to perform the procedures. Glaucoma and cataracts are the leading causes of blindness in many countries, he noted.

    "Remember we are all brothers," he said. "Our goal is no more canes."
