In Vitro Evaluation of the Efficacy of the Capsular Tension Ring for Managing Zonular Dialysis in Cataract Surgery.
Ophthalmic Surg Lasers 29:502-505, 1998.
Small studies have shown that the capsular tension ring maintains the circular contour of the capsular bag avoiding IOL decentration in patients with zonular dialysis.
In a clinical study, 14 patients with damaged zonules implanted with capsular tension rings, had no decentration 2 to 11 months after surgery.
A capsular tension ring appears to stabilize the capsule and improves the safety of phacoemulsification and PC IOL implantation, maintains circular contour and provides additional support to the bag. This may decrease migration of lens epithelial cells to the posterior capsule, thereby reducing the likelihood of secondary cataract.

Contrast sensitivity and glare disability by halogen light after monofocal and multifocal lens implantation.
Br.J Ophthalmol 2000, 84(10), p.1109-1112.
A new halogen glare test stimulating glare as seen with oncoming vehicle headlights was used to measure glare disability in patients implanted with multifocal and monofocal intraocular lenses (10Ls).
The results suggest NO difference in glare disability induced by halogen light similar to oncoming vehicle headlights for patients implanted with monofocal and multifocal IOLs.
