Cataract Spotlight/AAO 2019
Cataract/Anterior Segment, IOLs and Implantation

In this presentation from the Cataract Spotlight at AAO 2019, Dr. Tom Oetting presents his 5 pearls for capsular tension rings:

  • Use a sideways Arshinoff shell.
  • When placing a capsular tension ring in early, use cohesive viscoelastic to create a space between the capsule and the rest of the lens.
  • Capsular tension ring direction can matter.
  • Optic capture with capsular tension ring is a powerful way to fix a lens.
  • Use a Sinsky hook to guide the capsular tension ring.
