Intercapsular Cataract Extraction is a text taken from the proceedings of the seventh International Symposium on Anterior Segment Microsurgery, which took place in Hong Kong in 1987. It is a multiauthored text, each chapter detailing a talk presented at the symposium. The contributors have each had extensive experience with the intercapsular technique of cataract extraction, also known as the endocapsular or envelope technique.

With the development of new intraocular lens designs and more sophisticated techniques of lens implantation, concern about the anatomic location of lens placement and adverse optical, physiological effects of lens decentration has grown. In this light, the intercapsular technique has slowly gained in popularity as a method to ensure capsular fixation of the intraocular lens, and also, theoretically, to afford greater intraoperative control
