About Video

The capsular anchor is a novel device designed to fixate the lens capsule to the sclera wall in case of subluxation of the crystalline or artificial intraocular lenses. The anchor was used in a variety of cases of lens subluxation such as Marfan syndrome, following blunt trauma or in eyes with pseudoexfoliation of the lens. In cases of very large zonular dehiscence two anchors were implanted in the same eye. In all cases the lenses remain central and stable in a follow-up of up to 3 years.
