Fluidics is the main modality in phacoemulsification for controlling movement within the eye during cataract surgery. Vacuum generates the holding force to break apart the nucleus and flow rate brings the nucleus to the phaco tip. When a surgeon is working with an advanced fluidics system, he or she can achieve better outcomes more efficiently and reduce the risk for fluidics-related complications, such as rupture of the posterior capsule.
