Mackool Capsule Retractor and IOL Guide 6-466
• 0.25mm tip
• 45° angled shaft, tip to angle length 12mm
• Round handle, length 120mm
Used in minimising capsular stress during insertion of trailing IOL haptic, especially when capsulorhexis is not intact or zonular laxity is present. Open hook proximal to tip gently retracts anterior capsule. Distal concave end is used as a guide while trailing haptic is maintained when dialling in IOL. In this manner, there is no direct contact of haptic against capsular edge, thus avoiding unwanted stress to capsule and / or zonule.
