FP520 : Anchored IOL: A Minimally Invasive Scleral Fixation

Dr. Ayan Mohanta , M09320 

Here we describe a very simple technique of doing scleral fixated IOL, with minimum tissue handling, and thus minimum post operative inflammation. This technique of scleral fixation does not need any glue, sutures or cumbersome scleral flaps. 14 cases have been done so far, in our institute, with outstanding results. The visual recovery was rapid, post operative inflammation was minimum, IOL centration was almost near perfect in all the cases except one. In one case there was a haptic slippage in the vitreous cavity, may be because it was a case of Marfan’s Syndrome, and the IOL haptics won’t stretch so much. Overall results were very much promising. It can be undertaken during cataract surgery whenever there is a capsulozonular problem as a plan B.
