Capsule hooks are used for temporary support of the capsular bag during a cataract surgery when the zonules are weak or in case of subluxated lenses.

  • Capsule hooks are made of Nylon with an adjustable silicon lock
  • Designed such that the hook is angled to be in the plane of the anterior capsule
  • Easy to get a firm and reliable grip on the rim
  • Tip of the hook is rounded to prevent any accidental damage to the peripheral capsule while placing the hooks in the bag
  • Round tip also provides a larger support area per hook there by reducing the number of hooks required in each surgery
  • Silicon lock helps in retaining the hook in retracted position during the surgery

  • Supports the fornix as well as the capsulorhexis rim, so that the peripheral capsule isn’t attracted towards the phaco tip
  • Avoids the problem of the capsular tension ring trapping cortex
  • Prevents zonular stress during nuclear rotation
  • Makes it possible to perform posterior chamber phaco even with subluxated lenses having minimum zonular support
  • l Easy to insert and remove
