What is the impact of a small pupil?

  • Our surgeon advisors recommend that the pupil be at least 1mm greater than the selected capsulotomy diameter.
  • A smaller capsulotomy may be utilized if appropriate but try pharmacological dilation first.
  • If a small degree of dilation is required, CAPSULVisc 2% can be used to expand the pupil diameter mechanically.
  • If the pupil is constricted the use of an expander is recommended.
