Sinskey hook or IOL dialer

Used to manipulate the nucleus.
Wanna rotate the nucleus? Crack it?
Feed the nuclear fragments in the phaco tip?
Sinskey hook is the instrument for you!

IOL dialer?
Yeah, it is used to dial the PMMA non foldable IOL for proper positioning in the capsular bag or ciliary sulcus.

That's all!



  1. how to differentiate it from an iris repositor?

    1. Iris repositor has a straight or bent "blade" with blunt edges.
      IOL dialer has a bent "tip".

      PS: I'm not an ophthalmologist or anything so please correct me if I am wrong but I think this is the difference.

      Here's the link to the diagram --> http://medicowesome.blogspot.in/2013/12/difference-between-iris-repositor-and.html

      Hope it helps! :)
