Peeling Capsular Membranes

We present another great learning video from Dr. Val Apostolov from Amsterdam, The Netherlands to show the techniques of peeling capsular membranes in cataract surgery. These can be on the anterior capsular rim as shown in the above photo, or on the posterior capsule, right in the visual axis. Both of these conditions can often benefit from capsular peeling techniques. We must use a high degree of caution in these cases because of the delicate nature of the capsule which is as thin as 4 microns for the posterior capsule and 14 microns for the anterior capsule.
