Abstract: Thermal stability of the human lens capsule (type IV collagen) seems to be considerably lower than that of fibrous connective tissue (type I collagen). A potential risk of capsular shrinking has to be taken into account when the capsule is exposed to thermal stress during cataract surgery.
