Intrascleral 3-piece IOL Fixation in Combined RD Cases

Purpose: To report the results of intrascleral IOL fixation in patient who had lens lunation combined with retinal detachment (RD) surgery. Methods: Forty-seven eyes of 47 patients with a diagnosis of RD combined with lens luxation were enrolled into this prospective non-randomised study. Pre- and postoperative standard ophthalmic examination was performed in all patients. Surgery included either phacoemulsification or phacofragmentation...

My Experience with Sutureless Scleral Fixation IOL as a Fellow

Purpose: To present my experience with Sutureless Scleral Fixated intraocular lens (SSF IOL) during 2 years of retinal surgery fellowship between November 2013 and November 2015). Method: Sutureless scleral fixation of IOL implants involves externalising the haptics of the 3-pieces IOL (MA 50 BM® Alcon, Fort Worth, US) for fixation either within limbal scleral tunnels and or underneath scleral flaps. Two ab-externo sclerotomies are...

Lenses with Personality

Introduction: Older age and blunt trauma account for most cases of crystalline or intraocular lens (IOL) subluxation or dislocation. Not uncommonly, the retinal surgeon comes across cases in which the lens explant does not seem as easy as expected. Purpose: We report our experience with crystalline and intraocular lens implant removal. Material & Method: This is a retrospective assessment of the surgical records from five patients...

Transscleral Fixation of IOL in Cases Without Capsular Support

Purpose: To report the results of a technique of sutureless intrascleral fixation of a three-piece foldable hydrophobic acrylic posterior chamber intraocular lens (PC IOL) in the absence of capsular support. Technique: The foldable hydrophobic acrylic three-piece IOL is inserted through a conventional sub-2.8mm clear corneal incision and haptic are fixated into scleral tunnels at the limbus. This technique is suitable for cases of iris...

Secondary IOL Implantation in the Absence of Proper Bag Support

Proper fixation of IOL is not only the must as far as visual outcome is concerned. Properly fixated IOL is necessary to establish stable condition for future tamponade when the vitrectomy is needed. There are several option available when secondary IOL is needed and there is lack of capsule. The IOL may be sutured to the sclera but prolene 10, 0 suture remains less stable during time . IOL may be fixated to the sclera but this requires...

Secondary Intrascleral IOL Implantation According to Schariot Technique

The technique first described by Schariot shows the possibility of a secondary system of IOL folding with prolene lens without stitches and inserting the loops into a scleral tunnel. Such a technique is useful both to reposition the folding IOL with prolene dislocated lens and without having to remove the lens from the bulb, that is the closed eye technique. Its also useful for secondary system usin g these types of lenses by inserting...
