Golden Ring Sign!

Golden Ring Sign of Hydrodelineation!

-Injection of fluid into the body of the lens deep to the cortex resulting in separation of epinuclear shell from central nuclear mass.

- Driven by the hydraulic force of the syringe, the fluid will find the path of least resistance, which is the junction between the endonucleus and the epinucleus, and flow circumferentially in this contour.

-A circumferential golden ring will be seen outlining the cleavage between the epinucleus and the endonucleus.

-Useful technique in situations with compromised capsules.


Injection of fluid under the anterior capsule usually at 3 and 9'o' clock positions to separate the lens nucleus from cortex.
