Prof Dr Mohan Rajan, Chairman and Medical Director, Rajan Eye Care Hospital, Chennai, briefed My Medical Mantra about the technique used by him known as punchorhexis.
Dr Rajan said that, “In cataracts, there is a huge problem of Argentinian Flag sign. Because, the pressure inside the lens is very high. So, to prevent this, I developed a technique called punchorhexis. Where in with the Phaco probe, I go and punch the anterior capsule and reduce the intraocular pressure. Due to which the Argentinan Flag sign will never occur.”
He added, “So in this technique we have to use good phaco power about 40 to 50 per cent. Little more vacuum like 354 mm, give the punch of phaco and punch the anteria capsule.”
According to Dr Rajan, these components work in Argentina Flag sign in mature, also known as white cataracts.
While talking about BOA, Dr Rajan said that “Its a good platform for ophthalmologists coming from all over India. The live surgeries performed in the BOA, can help the ophthalmologists all over India, to perform surgeries and manage the patient’s.”
Dr Rajan advised that, the eyes are a gift given to mankind by God, so people should take good care of it.
Dr Rajan Said that, “Be aware about the eye problems and seek a proper treatment at the right time.”
