Fig. (8) a: The capsular bag as a human organ culture model in vitro. b: Capsular bag with a normal capsule tension ring. c: Morphology of untreated, well spread human lens cells after 21 d in the organ culture model (microscopic images, 10x). d: Morphology of lens cells after treatment with Mibefradil-containing micro particles (30 ┬ÁM) after 21 d in the organ culture model (microscopic images, 20x). Note that the cell area is reduced and neighbouring cells lost their cell-cell-contacts
