The approach to intraocular lens (IOL) implantation in an eye with insufficient capsular support continues to present a unique surgical challenge. A report from the American Academy of Ophthalmology Ophthalmic Technology Assessment group reviewed the standard approaches to this surgical problem (anterior chamber IOL, scleral sutured posterior chamber IOL [PCIOL], and iris fixated PCIOL) and did not identify compelling data to recommend one technique over another. However, each approach has well… CONTINUE READING
