Figure 1 : 

Subluxation technique. I. During hydrodissection, push water to rotate the nucleus up, to place it into the pupillary area. II. Phacoemulsification of the part going over the pupillary area in the anterior chamber. III. Using the ultrasonic probe rotate the half of 180°. IV Phacoemulsificate the remaining half of nucleus.
