The surgeon-designed Giannetti MICS Capsulorrhexis Forceps performs a capsulorrhexis through a 1.5-mm micro incision. It features very thin shanks that are less than 1 mm wide in the closed position and are limited to a maximum spread of 2 mm. The extremely small, delicate tips can be used to make the initial tear as well as to grasp the capsule while performing a capsulorrhexis. The shanks are angled and vaulted to provide better access to the capsule without stretching the incision, and the 8.5-mm diameter round handle is ergonomically designed for better control. The forceps works equally well when performing an anterior or posterior capsulorrhexis.
