Ocusystem Art: Chamber Stability

#1  
Problem Anterior Chamber Shallowing.
Solution
  1. Raise the Bottle. The level from the irrigation drip chamber to the patient’s eye level should be 30 to 36 inches. If high vacuum and aspiration rates are being used, increasing the bottle height will be necessary.
  2. Make sure that the sleeve over the phaco tip is not too far forward. This can reduce the amount of irrigation in to the Anterior Chamber.
  3. Make sure the incision size is not too large.
  4. Check that the correct settings are being used.
  5. Check the ART settings and that it is ON.
