The fishhook technique developed at the Lahan eye hospital is widely used in Nepal and other countries. Its specialty is the extraction of the nucleus with a bent 30-G needle (Fishhook) out of the capsular bag and the self-sealing tunnel. All sizes of nuclei can be extracted. The fishhook technique has a short learning curve, a low complication rate and provides excellent immediate visual outcome. It is cost-effective and has proved to be useful also for high-volume cataract surgery and thus can play an important role in the reduction of cataract blindness.
