(3) Fibrotic and brittle Using cystitome to capsulorhexis, the residual cortical matter was removed by I/ A, and anterior vitrectomy was performed.
Anterior capsulotomy was then performed in a continuous curvilinear capsulorrhexis with a cystitome. Hydro procedures were then performed and the nucleus prolapsed into the anterior chamber and lens expression was then performed by the sandwich technique.
A 6 to 6.5mm continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis (CCC) was done with cystitome. Anterior chamber was entered with the help of a keratome.
Viscoelastic was injected and continuous curvilinear capsulorrhexis approximately 6mm was created with a cystitome. The tunnel was extended to its full length of 6.5mm on either side with a keratome.
