Figure 2: A composite photograph of extracting the nucleus outside the capsular bag and subconjunctival limbus incision, ( a ) 6.0 mm capsulorhexis is performed using a pair of capsulorhexis forceps, ( b ) A Sinskey hook is used to extract one pole of the nucleus outside the capsular bag, ( c ) A vectis is passed into the anterior chamber and under the half-dislocated nucleus, ( d ) The external foramen of the tunnel is opened a little using downward pressure of the 'heel' of the Vectis, ( e ) The bulk of the nucleus is passing through the conjunctival pocket, ( f ) The whole nucleus is delivered from the eye, ( g ) A 5.5 mm 3-piece PMMA lens is implanted into the bag, ( h ) Final redeepening of the anterior chamber is done, ( i ) A limbal incision partly covered by conjunctiva-limbal attachment is created. 1 = corneal lip; 2 = limbal cut; 3 = inverted "L" conjunctival opening
