Posterior Chamber IOL Placement or Rescue Via a Sutureless Scleral Fixation Technique

  Channels: Cataract Surgery | Posted 11/21/2011

Jonathan L. Prenner, MD, presents a novel approach that can be used for the rescue of a subluxed or dislocated IOL as well as for the implantation of a secondary IOL. The technique allows for permanent scleral fixation of the polypropylene haptics of a three-piece IOL directly into the sclera to achieve a position in the ciliary sulcus, thus obviating the need for suturing.
