Abstract

Context: Cataract is the major cause of treatable blindness in India (62.6%). Quality cataract surgery is
basic need of the cataract blind patient. Phacoemulsification and SICS are routine surgery performed for
cataract in developing countries. Continuous Curvilinear Capsulorhexis is the most important pre-requisite
for successful outcome of cataract surgery.
Aim: To evaluate early outcome of assisted capsulorhexis versus manual capsulorhexis in cataract surgery.
Materials and Methods: This descriptive observational study was carried out during January 2017 to
October 2018 with purposive sampling of 100 cases.
Results: Mean age of the study population was 609.1 in which 84% patients had immature cataract,
while 16% patients had mature cataract. The cases operated by phacoemulsification surgery using manual
technique 76% had regular shape of CCC and with assisted technique 84% had regular shape of CCC.
Among patients operated with SICS using manual technique, 16% cases had regular shape of CCC and with
use of assisted capsulorhexis device, 80% had regular shaped CCC. A statistically significant association
was found between assisted technique and centration of the CCC (p=0.00001).
Conclusion: The assisted capsulorhexis device (VERUS) was found to be effective in achieving optimal
size, circularity and centration of CCC during cataract surgery.

Keywords: SICS- small incision cataract surgery.
