The cautery should be heated until it is dark-red, and barely visible. Coagulations should be made with the point of the cautery, in 3 parallel lines, centred on the equatorial region, from 9 to 3 o'clock, in the upper hemisphere. This technique is applied in the cases of eyes with catatract and threatened with detachment, where visibility is not good enough to permit of treatment by photocoagulation. Where the cataract requires surgery, the preventive treatment should be followed by a period of 6 mo. before the cataract is extracted. Given the normal incidence of 25% bilateral detachments in patients presenting presenile cataract, the results obtained (showing a failure rate of 8.5%) would appear to be satisfactory.
