For a Precisely Sized Capsulorrhexis

K5-5071 Utrata Capsulorrhexis Forceps, straight

figure 1

K5-5074 Masket Capsulorrhexis Forceps, vaulted
figure 2

Katena introduces two new capsulorrhexis forceps with landmarks on the anterior
surfaces which can be used to gauge a 5.0mm capsulotomy. The first line is 2.5mm
from the tip and is used to measure the radius (figure 1), while the second line at
5.0mm from the tip (figure 2) can be used to measure the overall diameter of the rhexis.
The triangular tips of the forceps are delicate and can be used to create the initial
capsular tear as well as to grasp the tag during the procedure. The forceps are
available with straight jaws (Utrata) or with vaulted jaws (Masket).

For a Perfectly Centered Capsulorrhexis

K3-7850 Kellen Capsulorrhexis Marker, 6.0mm
K3-7852 Kellen Capsulorrhexis Marker, 5.5mm

In order for an IOL to perform optimally, a precisely sized and accurately centered capsulorrhexis is
essential. This can be a challenging process which is made more difficult if the pupil dilates eccentrically.
To aid with this process a surgeon can use the Kellen Capsulorrhexis Marker. A perfectly centered
mark is created by aligning the tips of four non-marking posts with the limbus and gently pressing
the 5.5mm ring onto the corneal surface. Using the mark as a guide, the surgeon can produce
a centered, predictably sized 5.0mm capsulorrhexis. This instrument is also available with a
6.0mm ring for creating a 5.5mm capsulorrhexis.

Irrigation through the downward facing port keeps the capsular surface taut for evenly distributed contact with the outer ring.Capsule Polishers Henderson MICS Capsule Polisher K7-4890 In order to achieve excellent long term results in cataract surgery it is important to remove all of the residual cortex and cellular material from the capsule. The ring design ensures that capsule contact is distributed over a larger surface area.
