Standard MSICS Instruments


 A helpful tip is to know which instruments are part of the standard MSICS set.  Certainly this depends on the technique that is being used.  That is to say, whether one is using standard Aravind technique, the Blumenthal method or a fishhook technique for nucleus extraction.

My set below shows the instruments that we have used for years on standard MSICS using the Aravind technique with an irrigating vectis to remove the nucleus.


For doing standard Manual Small Incision cataract surgery, our standard instrument set is shown here.


The instruments that I use are the following:

1.  drape scissors

2.  Lid speculum

3.  .12 forcep

4.  Wescott scissors

5.  25 ga Cystitome

6.  3 blades - 15 degree, crescent, 3.0 keratome

7.  bipolar cautery

9.  27 ga cannula

10.  Irrigating Lens vectis

11.  Sinske hook

12.  Simcoe cannula

13.  Kelman forcep (IOL forcep)


Extra instruments that are peel packed or used occasionally are:

Needle driver

Vannas scissor

Utrada forcep

Iris Spatula
