Publication Exclusive: Gore-Tex suture can be used in small-incision scleral fixation of hydrophilic acrylic IOL

Secondary IOL placement is often associated with an IOL exchange due to previous IOL subluxation or dislocation and, less commonly, aphakic correction. The location of IOL placement is within the anterior chamber or posterior chamber. Techniques include anterior chamber angle haptic placement, iris fixation, ciliary sulcus placement with or without scleral suture fixation based on capsular support status, or IOL haptic externalization with haptic tucking in the scleral pocket or, rarely, within an intact capsular bag.
