          A 88-year-old female who was being treated for end-stage pseudoexfoliation syndrome was referred to our hospital for treatment of dislocated intraocular lens (IOL) and the elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) and in the right eye (RE). At the first visit to our hospital, best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 0.2 in the RE and 0.02 in the left eye (LE). IOP was 47 mm Hg in the RE and 21 mm Hg in the LE. Slit-lamp examination showed no abnormalities in anterior segments and dislocated IOL in the RE. Fundus photograph showed optic disc pallor in both eyes. We performed the combined therapy of flanged intrascleral IOL fixation with the double-needle technique and trabeculectomy. Throughout the follow-up period, BCVA slightly improved from 0.2 to 0.4 in the RE. The angle of tilt of the IOL was 6.6, 7.9, and 8.7° as measured by swept-source optical coherence tomography at 1, 4, and 6 months after the surgery, respectively. The IOP remained less than 10 mm Hg without having to administer any other glaucoma medications. Furthermore, any complications associated with the surgery were not confirmed.

          Flanged Intrascleral Intraocular Lens Fixation with Double-Needle Technique.

            Simplified and safe method of sutureless intrascleral posterior chamber intraocular lens fixation: Y-fixation technique.

            We report a new surgical technique that allows intrascleral fixation of a posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL) without sutures. The Y-fixation technique does not involve complicated intraocular manipulation and achieves safe sutureless fixation. A Y-shaped incision is made in the sclera and a 24-gauge microvitreoretinal (MVR) knife is used to create the sclerotomy instead of a needle. The Y-shaped incision eliminates the need to raise a large lamellar scleral flap and to use fibrin glue because the haptic can be fixed both inside the tunnel and in the groove, and performing the sclerotomy with the 24-gauge MVR knife simplifies extraction of the haptic and improves wound closure. There is no risk of infection from exposure of the haptic on the sclera and no use of fibrin glue. There was significantly less IOL decentration and tilt than with suture fixation.

              Trocar-assisted sutureless intrascleral posterior chamber foldable intra-ocular lens fixation.

              We report a novel technique characterized by sutureless scleral fixation of three-pieces foldable intraocular lens (IOL) using 25-gauge transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy (TSV) trocars in patients with insufficient posterior capsule support.
