The addition of edetic acid (EDTA) or trypsin to the infusion during a simulated extracapsular cataract extraction on cadaver eyes facilitates the removal of lens epithelial cells from the anterior capsule. Modification of the chemical composition of infusions used during extracapsular surgery may maximise lens epithelial cell removal and hence reduce the incidence of opacification of the posterior capsule after cataract extraction.
