Abstract
Several techniques are used to reposition dislocated intraocular lenses (IOLs). Most place a suture loop around the end of the haptic. However, in cases of a dislocated capsular bag containing the IOL, a dislocated IOL with a large haptic, or a miotic pupil, it is not easy to see the haptic ends to place the suture loop. We describe a scleral fixation technique that uses 2 corneal tunnels. A double-armed 10-0 polypropylene suture loop can be introduced through 1 corneal tunnel and placed around any accessible part of the haptic with the help of a bent 26 gauge needle. This modified technique is an easy and effective way to reposition the IOL.
