Repositioning a dislocated IOL can be complicated but have good results

January 26, 2015

Despite our best efforts, complications happen during cataract surgery, and often it is not surgeon error, but rather weakness or irregularity in the tissue of the patient. When cataract surgery patients do not have a sufficient degree of capsular support, alternative methods of IOL placement must be used. Placing a three-piece IOL in the ciliary sulcus is a commonly used technique that can give great long-term results and stability. Sometimes, however, the IOL can become dislodged and require a second surgery for repositioning.
