IOL Capture in PCR

This post shows:

– A patient with IOL OPTIC CAPTURED post phacoemulsification in Morgagnian Cataract;

– Example drawing;
– Rhexis size example;
– Three piece IOL recommended to use in the technique.

I recommend to capture the optical zone in patients with:

– Posterior capsule rupture;
– Morganagnian cataract and;

– Large Capsular bag.

IMPORTANT – To capture the IOL optic, the capsulorhexis opening must be at least 1.0 to 2.0 mm smaller than the optic diameter.


– The technique provides stability and long-term centration of the IOL – Prevents vitreous from extending anterior to the IOL in posterior capsular rupture;
– Prevents pigmentary dispersion.
