A free circular capsulorhexis .
Inspect the capsulorhexis and look for the appearance of a “clear red gutter” around the central capsular button to see if it looks free. It almost always is free and may even be floating in the anterior chamber.
Use a capsulorhexis forceps to grab the central circular flap and gently lift it off the surface of the lens.
Keep your eye on the area where the capsule separates and not where your forceps are grabbing.
In the very rare event that there are micro-adhesions gently fold the capsule over and continue as for a manual capsulorhexis.
After removing the capsule from the eye I push on the posterior lip of the incision for a few seconds. This allows some of the viscoelastic to egress from the eye and “decompresses the anterior chamber”. I don’t rush this to allow pressures within the eye to equilibrate.
