Video Title: 50 years of phaco – Patrick Condon


Description:

Paul Rosen interviews Patrick Condon about the early days of phacoemulsification. Irish surgeon Patrick Condon visited Charles Kelman in New York, where he observed surgeries and travelled with Kelman by private helicopter, as well as later bringing him to Ireland in the mid-1980s. He also worked with Eric Arnott in London, where he learned the procedure. He tells Paul Rosen how the development of capsulorhexis and lens implants were key to phaco going mainstream, following years of heavy opposition, and looks to the future to see what direction the surgery will go in next.
