The film highlights the value of using capsular fibrosis to anchor de-centered capsular bags. Double armed sutures can be passed through areas of capsular fibrosis at the capsulorhexis or equator of the bag and tied to a scleral bed using a 26-gauge needle in order to stabilize and center a subluxed capsular bag. Using capsular fibrosis is a reliable way to re-center a subluxed capsular bag when placing a secondary IOL.
