A novel method of intrascleral fixation of haptics is demonstrated. Video clips from multiple cases are used to show the evolution of intrascleral fixation of haptics and then show a new technique of achieving this using 25g cannulas placed transconjunctivally. Succesful PC IOL fixation can be achieved in the absence of capsular support without the need for conjunctival dissection, diathermy or sutures, resulting in minimal surgical trauma to the eye.
