Temporary Haptic fixation With a Silicone Plug
By Mahi Muqit, PhD, FRCOphth; David
Mordant, MD; and C. K. Patel, FRCOphth
The surgeons describe a modified intrascleral IOL fixation technique using a temporary silicone plug following a 23-gauge pars plana vitrectomy. While adjusting the centration of the IOL's optic, the leading haptic remains anchored by the silicone plug under the scleral flap. Once the IOL is positioned correctly, the silicone plug is removed, and the leading haptic is tucked into the intrascleral tunnel.
