Bag-in-the-lens

The bag-in-the-lens has been specifically designed to eradicate secondary cataract. Its implantation technique needs higher surgical precision and specific surgical steps, though without prolonging the surgical procedure significantly.

In this website you will find your way through the historical background and the scientific work on which this implantation technique is based.

The major advantages are:

  1. absence of secondary cataract in a 10 year follow-up;
  2. high stability of the lens allowing the implantation of more complex optics like toric intraocular lenses;
  3. easy exchangeability, which makes this surgical approach very attractive for children or patients with ocular comorbidities which may reduce the refractive outcome (e.g. after lasik, radial keratotomy, progressive corneal diseases like keratoconus, babies, children).
