Description :

Designed by Richard J. MacKool, M.D.

FCI is the exclusive distributor of the MacKool Cataract Support System which provides capsular support during cataract surgery. It anchors the capsule to the scleral wall and stabilizes the entire equator of the capsular bag during phaco and cortex removal, especially in cases of absent or weak zonules. Mackool Cataract Support hooks slide around the rhexis edge and support the peripheral capsular fornix. Significantly different from iris retractors, Mackool hooks have blunt distal ends and are elongated to support the fornix and not tear the rhexis. Indications include floppy iris syndrome and contracted pupils.
