Holdability describes the ability of the phaco tip to hold onto the lens and keep it stationary, which is advantageous when surgeons need to hold the lens in place for chopping.
Followability describes the ability of the phaco pump to continuously draw the lens fragments to the phaco tip as emulsification occurs. Followability is advantageous for surgeons because it allows them to use the fluid stream to draw in peripheral lens fragments.
