Capsule cleansing is first performed to include the central posterior area with a silicone tipped cannula on a 5cc saline filled syringe and the undersurface of the anterior capsule using both a Singer Sweep (Epsilon) for the subincisional area and a Rentsch Capsule Curette (Geuder) for the remainder of the anterior capsule. A needle is then used to incise the central posterior capsule and OVD is placed into Berger's Space. A primary posterior continuous curvalinear capsulorhexis is then fashioned using forceps. A standard IOL is then placed into the bag and the case concluded.
