PURPOSE: To evaluate visual outcomes and complications of bimanual microincision cataract surgery performed by surgeons in training. SETTING: Institute of Ophthalmology, University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Modena, Italy. DESIGN: Prospective case series. METHODS: The corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA), astigmatism, corneal pachymetry, and endothelial cell count were evaluated before and 7 and 30 days after bimanual MICS performed by surgeons in training. Intraoperative and postoperative complications were also recorded. RESULTS: Three surgeons in training performed bimanual MICS in 150 eyes of 131 patients. There were 18 intraoperative complications (12.0%) (10 iris traumas [6.6%]; 4 capsule ruptures without vitreous loss [2.7%]; 3 capsule ruptures with vitreous loss [2.0%]; 1 intraocular lens [IOL] implantation in the sulcus due to zonular laxity [0.7%]). There were 5 postoperative complications (3.3%) (2 iris prolapses [1.3%]; 1 IOL loop malposition [0.7%]; 1 narrowing of anterior chamber [0.7%]; 1 capsulorhexis phimosis [0.7%]). Thirty days postoperatively, the mean CDVA improvement was 0.53 ± 0.20 (Snellen decimal) (P < .05), the mean decrease in astigmatism was 0.09 ± 0.54 diopter (P = .29), and the mean increase in corneal pachymetry was 7.42 ± 22.01 μm (P = .12). There was statistically significant endothelial cell loss (mean 496.50 ± 469.66 cells/mm(2)) (P < .05). CONCLUSIONS: Bimanual MICS performed by surgeons in training was safe and effective. Visual outcomes and complication rates were similar to those reported for coaxial cataract surgery performed by surgeons in training.
