Scleral-fixated IOL using a 25-Gauge Needle Scleral Tunnel

3: 56, Phoebe Lin, MD, PhD


This video illustrates the use of a single step for scleral tunnel creation and IOL haptic capture using a 25-gauge needle to simultaneously create the scleral tunnel and fixate the IOL by threading the IOL haptics through the bore of the needle.  This was demonstrated in a 51 year old male with traumatic dislocated crystalline lens associated with a superior 180 degree iridodialysis.
