In cooperation with Prof. Gerd U. Auffarth of the University of Heidelberg Eye Clinic, Geuder has developed a new MICS Double Cross-Action Capsulorhexis Forceps. The design of the branches which lie over one another makes the forceps ideal for small clear-cornea incisions of up to 1.6 mm. The double cross-action mode of function gives the surgeons more freedom of movement in the anterior chamber, promoting effective capsulorhexis. This new and innovative technique is more gentle to the edge of the incision and prevents the iris from being pinched, particularly in cases of intraoperative Floppy Iris Syndrome (IFIS).
