Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery, 04/27/2012Rai AS et al.
An 89–year–old woman initially presented with a subluxated posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL) that was exchanged for an Artisan iris–claw IOL. The IOL had been enclavated nasally and temporally, but it deenclavated nasally 4 weeks postoperatively. During surgery to reposition the IOL, 1 haptic of the nasal claw was seen to be damaged. It was sutured to the iris with 10–0 polypropylene using a CIF–4 needle. The postoperative outcome was good.
