Abstract
PURPOSE: To introduce a simple, modified technique for easier enclavation of retropupillary iris claw intraocular lens (IOL) in patients requiring secondary intraocular lens implantation. METHODS: This technique uses the 27-gauge cannula connected to the viscoelastic device to simultaneously enclavate both haptics of the retropupillary iris claw IOL, while reducing the number of steps involved and eliminating the need for switching instruments and hands. RESULTS: In the case described, excellent postoperative results were observed with a stable and well-centered retropupillary iris claw IOL, uncorrected visual acuity of 20/20, and little patient discomfort with no signs of complications after 2 years. CONCLUSIONS: This simple, modified technique is useful, not only for beginners but also for advanced surgeons, because of its advantages of enhanced stability, increased efficiency, and ease of use.
