  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A new ophthalmic surgery for extracapsu-lar cataract extraction was performed on com-plicated cataract, congenital cataract and senile cataract. This surgery has no faults of extra-capsular extraction and no complications which accompany intracapsular extraction.

1. This surgery was developed based on the following facts.

1) The lens capsule maintains completely its transparency in most of congenital and acquired cataract cases.

2) Especially, the posterior capsule keeps its transparency perfectly and continuously even after extracapsular extraction.

2. A new capsulotome for this surgery was made by authors.
