Abstract

We describe a new technique of scleral fixation for the management of dislocated intraocular lenses (IOL). A suture is tied inside the eye around the dislocated haptic to prevent slippage of the IOL after surgery. The technique, which is safe and less invasive than previous methods, was used in 3 patients and the results are presented.
