We read with interest the article by Papaconstantinou et al1 entitled “Safety and efficacy of phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation through a small pupil using minimal iris manipulation”. In their study, the authors compared the results of phacoemulsification through a small pupil using minimal iris manipulation versus phacoemulsification through a well-dilated pupil. They concluded that phacoemulsification through a small pupil using minimal iris manipulation can be safe and it exhibits the same results as those obtained with phacoemulsification through normal pupils. We congratulate the authors for their lightening study and would like to make some contributions and report a contradiction in the study.
