A minimally invasive 25G vitrectomy and trans-scleral IOL fixation is performed for an aphakic patient. The patient was an 80 year-old Caucasian gentleman who previously presented with dropped nucleus secondary to complicated cataract surgery. A foldable Akreos lens is inserted through a 2.8 mm corneal incision. V8 GORE-TEX suture was used to fixate the lens in place through small 25G scleral incisions. Patient’s vision improved from 20/400 to 20/40 a week after surgery.
