Capsular Cleaning to Remove Lens Epithelial Cells

  Channels: Cataract Surgery | Posted 2/22/2010

Following cataract extraction, Wolfram Wehner, MD, and George Waring, MD polish the capsule using the Dodick Nd:YAG laser photolysis instrument to prevent PCO. These pulses are generated by laser absorption in the titanium tip of the handpiece, such that the shock wave and plasma emerge from the tip and disrupt the lens epithelial cells. The laser pulse itself remains within the instrument tip.
