UNLABELLED A modified dissection technique of donor eyes for investigating posterior capsule opacification (PCO) that preserves normal capsule and zonule architecture is described. The intact crystalline lens-zonule-ciliary body complex is dissected from the globe in one piece and pinned with 8 entomological pins through the ciliary body to a soft silicone ring with an internal diameter of 12.7 mm. The specimen is iridectomized and cataract extraction performed; the specimen is then placed in… CONTINUE READING
