When not positioned completely within the capsular bag, single-piece acrylic IOLs can cause pigment dispersion syndrome, uveitis, and recurrent vitreous hemorrhages from contact between the posterior surface of the iris and square-edged IOL haptics and optics. This video will demonstrate a case of recurrent vitreous hemorrhage from incomplete capsular bag implantation of a single-piece acrylic lens. Various treatment options to resolve the recurrent hemorrhages are presented. Ultimate resolution was achieved by viscodissection of the capsular bag and repositioning of the IOL completely within the capsular bag 3 years following the initial surgery.
