Then under high magnification posterior capsulorrhexis was done by automated cutter and anterior vitrectomy was performed.

If the patient was younger than 5 years old, had mental retardation, or cooperated poorly, a routine posterior capsulorrhexis combined with anterior vitrectomy was performed.
Objective: To perform a meta-analysis on the precision and safety of femtosecond laser-assisted anterior capsulotomy versus conventional manual continuous curvilinear capsulorrhexis.

Capsulorrhexis was performed with capsulorrhexis forceps and removed throu9h the corneal incision.
Anterior chamber was entered with 2.6 mm Keratome and anterior chamber was filled by methylcellulose and then a 5 mm anterior continuous curvilinear capsulorrhexis was performed.
Manual construction of the capsulorrhexis is one of the most challenging aspects of cataract surgery to master.
The surgical technique included continuous-tear capsulorrhexis, using a bent needle or utrata forceps, hydrodissection, and bimanual divide-and-conquer technique was used for nucleus removal.
However, new laser platforms have been developed which enable this femtosecond laser to operate in a similar fashion to perform lens fragmentation, anterior capsulorrhexis and corneal or limbal incisions at the time of cataract extraction.
For phaco-emulsification surgery, a temporal 3.0 mm clear corneal incision was made and a continuous curvilinear capsulorrhexis was created, using trypan blue if necessary, following which hydrodissection was performed.
