    In this video, Dr. Mayui Nagata and colleagues investigate how different IOLs affect anterior capsulorhexis contraction (ACC) after surgery. The team discovered that the ZCV00V lens causes less contraction compared with the FY-60AD and SN60WF IOLs. The shape and structure of the ZCV00V facilitates better flow of aqueous humor to the anterior capsule, preventing cell proliferation and fibrosis. This discovery gives rise to a new way to potentially suppress ACC.
