IOL Explantation: Removal of the Optic Only Technique

6: 00, Martin Charles, MD

Synopsis

IOL explantation is a common surgical indication for cases of error in the IOL power calculation, opacified lenses and luxated or sublixated lenses. We present a variant in the surgical technique of explanting only the optic and leaving the haptics in the bag so as to avoid zonular complications in cases of opacified IOL.
