STC: Intrascleral Haptic Fixation of IOLs and Related Procedures

My Session Status

1:30 PM, Friday 10 Jun 2022 (1 hour 30 minutes)
Break in the Exhibition Hall    03:00 PM to 03:45 PM (45 minutes)
Skills Transfer Course (STC)Cataract


Implantation of an IOL in the absence of capsular support remains challenging for many surgeons. Intrascleral haptic fixation using the flanged, double needle (Yamane) technique allows the surgeon to scleral fixate a 3 piece IOL in the setting of complete zonular compromise.  The technique leaves the conjunctiva and sclera relatively undisturbed compared to other scleral fixation techniques while also reducing surgical time.

Attendees will gain experience with the Yamane flanged double needle intrascleral haptic fixation technique in a wetlab setting.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the approach for sutureless intrascleral fixation of a 3-piece IOL
  • Perform intrascleral fixation of a 3-piece IOL
  • Describe other related flanged/riveting techniques
