Figure 5

Soft-shell technique: (a) 3 seconds: after the application of ultrasound, the cohesive types of ophthalmic viscosurgical devices (OVDs) were immediately aspirated. (b) 25 seconds: the dispersive types of OVDs were retained on the surface of the corneal endothelium. (c) 30 seconds: cross-sectional view of the tip. (d) 90 seconds: dispersive types of OVDs formed a layer with a certain thickness on the surface of the corneal endothelium.
