Capsular tension ring (CTR) and iris hooks have proved to be useful devices in cataract surgery in cases of zonular weakness and dialysis. We would like to describe the use of monofilament 10-0 nylon (MFN)- guided CTR insertion in a subluxated cataractous lens. Here, the MFN is passed through the distal trailing eyelet of the CTR (simple or Morcher's depending on the size of the defect and subluxation) for controlled insertion of the distal eyelet of the CTR beneath the anterior capsulorhexis margin and safe retrieval of CTR in case of an iatrogenic posterior capsular tear during CTR insertion or phacoemulsification.
