Since its launch in 1991, high-frequency capsulotomy has proven to be the ideal method for opening the lens capsule in uncountable cases. The use of high-frequency energy melts the capsular bag – entirely without the usual tearing by forceps or needles. It is sufficient to gently slide the capsulotomy tip over tissues, even under the iris, while dosing the diathermy energy. The resulting capsular edge conforms to the current standard – both during surgery and over the long term.
HF capsulotomy is suited for indications such as no fundus reflex, hypermature cataract, traumatic cataract, intumescent cataract and juvenile cataract. Even with narrow pupils, out-of-control rhexis or rhexis phimosis, HF capsulotomy delivers reliable outcomes.
Advantages of capsulotomy
- Gentle alternative to capsulorhexis
- Melting the capsular bag without tearing with
forceps or needles
- Fine and directly controlled dosing of the HF energy
