IOL Luxation during silicone oil removal

DOI: 10.3207/2261505695

In an eye with a subluxated IOL and during silicone oil removal, all of a sudden the IOL disappears, possibly because the caspular bag was aspirated with the oil. Soon thereafter the iris is transiently aspirated by the aspiration needle. The IOL is found on the retina of the posterior pole. It is elevated with a flute needle (silicone tipped), grasped with foreps by its haptics and extracted via a sclerotomy. Later on a chamger angle suspended IOL will be implanted in the anterior chamber.
