    This video shows a rare situation where the IOL and rubber piece of the injector were both injected into the eye. The trailing haptic of the IOL was incarcerated in the injector. Repeated withdrawal of the plunger to dislodge the haptic resulted in injection of the rubber piece that is placed behind the IOL. Management includes using the IOL as a scaffold to protect the posterior capsule and delivering the rubber piece out of the eye.
