Abstract

We describe a new technique of transscleral intraocular lens fixation in the absence of adequate posterior capsular support. This technique of suture placement within the ciliary sulcus employs routinely used instruments, requires minimum manipulation, and has good visual outcome and negligible complications. We performed five intraocular lens implantations using the technique with good visual outcomes in each. No significant intraoperative or postoperative complications were noted.
