SCLERAL FIXATED IOL
It is a type of an IOL/ artificial lens placed by a second procedure in a position behind the lens in the eye. This procedure is considered whenever there is inadequate or no capsular support to keep the IOL. This can result due to weak capsular bag, trauma and other disease process such as pseudo-exfoliation syndrome, Marfan’ syndrome. Since the IOL can’t be hanging freely, it is fixed by sutures or fixed by glue in which case it is called GLUED IOL. This procedure is also an option when the IOL placed inside the eye already is displaced and cannot be repositioned.
