    Previous techniques for scleral fixation of an IOL could be cumbersome and affected by suture erosion or IOL dislocation. More recently, Dr. Shin Yamane described a sutureless approach where the IOL is secured within the scleral walls by flanging the haptic tips. This video shows step-by-step one effective and efficient modification of his sutureless scleral-fixation technique where the haptics are externalized through trocar cannulae rather than needles.
