Bausch & Lomb Releases Whitman Shepherd Double-Ended Capsule Polisher


ALISO VIEJO, CALIF. -- Bausch & Lomb Storz® Ophthalmic Instruments announced the release of the Whitman Shepherd Double-Ended Capsule Polisher. This instrument, designed by Jeffrey Whitman, MD, of Dallas, TX, provides a circular metal polisher at each end to allow for cleaning 180 degrees of the capsule in each direction.

Designed for removing LECs from the inner surface of the capsule, the circular ends are ideal for cleaning the equator of the capsular bag prior to Crystalens® insertion. The double-ended design provides a left angled and right angled polisher on one handle for surgeon convenience.

The Whitman Shepherd Double-Ended Capsule Polisher is one instrument available in the complete Crystalens Instrument Set offered by Bausch & Lomb Storz Ophthlamics. Other instruments in the set include the Wallace 6mm Capsulorhexis Gauge, Utrata MICS™ Capsulorhexis Forceps, Lindstrom Lens Positioner and Brown Crystalens Haptic Placement Forceps. The complete set, as well as a video of the Whitman Shepherd Double-Ended Capsule Polisher, can be viewed by visiting
