Measures to increase the pupil diameter are discussed in Chapter 10. Alternatively, the pupil can be retracted with a second instrument through a paracentesis, allowing the peripheral capsule to be viewed and the rhexis performed. As the tear progresses the second instrument is moved along the pupillary edge to maintain visualisation. 8 Capsulorhexis in a white cataract using trypan blue dye (Vision Blue; courtesy of Dorc) edge is possible but requires considerable experience. It should be noted that the ideal capsulorhexis diameter should be larger than the “small” pupil in order to avoid synechiae between iris and rhexis margin.
