Do You Use Capsular Tension Rings During Cataract Surgery?

I’ve never used these before (I’m not a high volume surgeon), and the videos make me cringe a little. I notice that the insertion puts a fair amount of stress on the zonules. But I understand that despite that, surgeons swear by them, so I know that they work. Probably, in a pretty dense cataract with bad zonules, I am going to refer the case- it’s not worth the grey hairs! But in a moderate cataract, I feel comfortable trying it out. I wonder what other lower-volume surgeons like me think.
