75 mm. This wound construction was difficult to make entirely watertight. Sporadic reports of endophthalmitis gave credence to the issue of inadequate wound seal allowing backward flow of tear into the anterior chamber with commensurate bacterial contamination. Cadaver studies of this wound architecture by Ernest7 revealed that square corneal wound construction, regardless of incision size, was as stable as sclerocorneal tunnel incisions with the corneal lip. The stable incision was thought to be more watertight and would therefore prevent endophthalmitis.

This resulted in even greater wound stability, with resultant enhanced visual restoration of stable vision. SUTURELESS CATARACT SURGERY THE SCLEROCORNEAL INCISION In January 1990, theorizing that the suture closure of the incision caused hyphema, Michael McFarland4 introduced the concept of sutureless incision construction. 0 mm. He created vertical cuts in the floor of the incision near the external aspect to allow passage of the folded silicone IOL. Paul Ernest5 shortened the length of the scleral aspect of the tunnel and modified the internal aspect of the incision to lengthen it, thus creating an internal corneal lip.
