What is the mechanism of action?

  • A selective target for CAPSULaser is created when the capsule is stained with CAPSULBlue, a specific formulation of trypan blue.
  • A fixation laser, coaxial with the view of the surgeon, allows identification of the visual axis location in patients with translucent cataracts in a manner similar to LASIK. In addition, the capsulotomy position is visualized by a scanned aiming laser.
  • The surgeon is in control at all times and the capsulotomy is placed at the determined location.
  • Once the surgeon has determined the location for treatment, the focused laser is activated and it describes a circle in about 1 second to create the capsulotomy.
