Abstract

Purpose of review: To review the methods described in the literature in the past year (from August 2003 to date). Recent findings: Techniques for scleral and iris suturing have proven safe and effective to fixate posterior chamber intraocular lenses and avoid the sight-threatening complications of anterior chamber lenses. Summary: Scleral and iris fixation have both become well-established effective means for stabilizing posterior chamber lenses in the lack of adequate capsular support.
