Malyugin ring is used to mechanically dilate small pupils during cataract surgery. The current version of this single-use device, the Malyugin Ring System, consists of a holder and inserter packaged together with each ring. The inserter is used to withdraw the ring from the holder. It also introduces the ring into the anterior chamber and removes the ring from the eye. Standard teaching is to introduce the ring inserter tip in bevel up position. However, the insertion becomes easier and less traumatic by keeping the inserter bevel down. This video shows this insertion technique.
