Abstract Details

Purpose:

To produce a predictable repeatable well-centered continuous curvilinear capsulorrhexis with a diameter of 5 mm when performing cataract phacoemulsification.

Setting:

a small cohort study

Methods:

On 20 consecutive eyes with cataract before the stage of capsulorrhexsis a specially designed silicone ring (Verus Capsulorhexis Device, Mile High Ophthalmics) was implanted in the anterior chamber. Along its inner edge serving as a guide a continuous round capsulorrhexis was performed.

Results:

There were no complications during the stage of capsulorrhexis. The produced openings of the anterior capsule were centered, round and with a predictable diameter of 5 mm.

Conclusions:

The used calibrated silicone ring enables predictable repeatable and centered round capsulorrhexis with a diameter of 5 mm. It represents a reasonable alternative to the capsulorrhexis with a femtosecond laser. FINANCIAL DISCLOUSRE: NONE
