Hydrodelamination is one of the key steps for phacoemulsification in posterior polar cataract. Hydrodissection either intentional or inadvertent is contraindicated in posterior polar cataract. Inadvertent hydrodissection can happen during hydrodelamination while water jet can pierce softer nuclear material reach subcapsular area. A modified canula where opening of canula is 2mm inside could perform hydrodelamination safely as it inject water vertically.
