    Tips for Using a Capsulorrhexis Marking Device on the Cornea

    Cataract/Anterior Segment, Cornea/External Disease

    Dr. Ashish Sapkal demonstrates how to use a rhexis marking device on the cornea to create an adequately sized capsulorrhexis in a patient with high myopia. Because the patient has a large white-to-white corneal horizontal diameter of about 14 millimeters, the marking device is used to ensure proper centration of the capsulorrhexis.

    Dr. Sapkal would like to acknowledge Dr. Sourabh Patwardhan in Sangli, India, for providing the information that corneal power would magnify the shadow of the ring marked with the device on the anterior capsule.
