Accessories: Phaco Tips & Sleeves

#1  
Problem Poor Phaco Performance.
Solution
  1. Make sure that the Phaco Tip is tight.
  2. Check that the Phaco Tip is not bent.
  3. Check for any damage to the mouth of the Phaco Tip.
NOTE: Damaged Tips can break apart in the eye and should be replaced.
#2  
Problem Poor Follow ability.
Solution
  1. Over used Sleeves can cause poor follow ability because they allow too much flow out the front of the sleeve.
  2. Over used Sleeves can also cause heating in the incision because internal ribs are worn down.
