Inside CTR Preloaded Capsular Tension Ring


Advantages of using Inside® CTR:

  • Expands and stabilises the capsular bag.
  • Distributes even pressure to all zonular fibres and prevents uneven pressure to single zonular fibres.
  • Ensures centration of the IOL, even with post-operative capsular bag shrinkage.
  • Reduces the risk of capsular bag or zonular damage during surgery.
  • Facilitates phacoemulsification, cortical aspiration and IOL implantation.
  • Replaces the need for a scleral IOL.
  • Simplifies potential IOL explantation.
  • Reduces the incidence of folds in the capsule
  • The Capsular Tension Rings have eyelets at both ends to facilitate insertion
