Capsule Cleansing of the posterior and undersurface of the anterior capsule is demonstrated. The central posterior capsule is polished with a silicone tipped cannula on a 5cc saline filled syringe. The undersurface of the anterior capsule is scrubbed with a Rentsch Capsule Curette (Geuder) for most of the capsule and a Singer Sweep (Epsilon) for the subincisional area. The case is concluded with IOL placement and evacuation of OVD with liberated lens epithelial cells.
