Rights and Permissions

Intracameral cysticercosis is a rare disease, and surgical management with viscoexpression is the preferred technique.

Our technique uses a custom-made assembly combining an intraocular lens (IOL) cartridge with an aspiration cannula. We compare its utility with the preexisting surgical methods.
