Abstract

Phakic rehabilitation poses challenges for patients without capsular support, making traditional intraocular lens (IOL) implantation difficult. In such cases, an Anterior Chamber (AC) IOL or a scleral-fixated posterior chamber IOL (SF-PC IOL) can be considered as options. To ensure a well-centered IOL, haptics should be away from the ciliary processes, iris, and oraserrata, with sufficient distance from the iris to prevent capture. Delayed IOL dislocation can occur due to suture breakage, but it can be prevented by proper IOL size and snugly opposing the stitched haptics into the ciliary sulcus.
