VERUS Ophthalmic Caliper

  Channels: Cataract Surgery | Posted 3/16/2015

Dr. Taravella creates a capsulorhexis using the VERUS ophthalmic caliper.

Suggested steps for successful use of the VERUS ophthalmic caliper:

1. Create incisions and fill eye with VE as typically done.
2. Insert VERUS through main wound using Y hook, Kuglen, Duets or similar device and place over anterior capsule surface.
3. Allow 1/4 to 1/3 of VE to exit main wound.
4. Enter eye with VE cannula and tap down on VERUS every 1-2 clock hours while injecting over the VERUS pushing it against the capsule for stability and proper creation of a CCC and simultaneously refilling the anterior chamber.
5. Use the cystotome or forceps to start the rhexis. The initial anterior capsular flap should not be guided directly to the inner edge of VERUS rather, the flap should be kept short of the inner rim by 1-2mm and then lifted by forceps and walked tangentially to the inner rim while maintaining a vertical orientation along the inner rim of VERUS.
6. Use Duet forceps (preferred) or other capsulorhexis forceps to grab the capsule and walk along the inner rim of VERUS while keeping the capsule vertically oriented against the device for 360 degrees.
7. Remove VERUS with a Sinskey hook or capsulorhexis forceps.
8. Complete cataract surgery as per routine.
