    15. Unique approach to managing a posteriorly dislocated IOL

    When a three-piece IOL intended for sulcus placement dislocates posteriorly during an IOL exchange procedure, cataract surgeons can consider several possible strategies. The options include leaving the dropped lens in the posterior segment while implanting either a posterior chamber or anterior chamber IOL or simply leaving the patient aphakic with the dropped IOL.

    Alternatively, surgeons might attempt posterior-assisted levitation of the dislocated implant or seek assistance of a vitreoretinal surgeon.

    When faced with this clinical scenario in an 85-year-old man with a history of vitrectomy with endolaser for retinal detachment repair, George Beiko, MD, implemented a novel, gravity-based solution.
