Combined suture-in-needle and scleral tunnel technique for scleral fixation of intraocular lens.

Abstract

We describe an intraocular lens (IOL) fixation technique that combines suture-in-needle and scleral tunnel techniques. A 10-0 polypropylene suture is inserted into the barrel of a 27-gauge sharp needle to tie the IOL haptic, and scleral tunnels are created to bury the knots for transscleral IOL fixation.
