In recent years the Akreos IOL, a hydrophilic lens, and GoreTex suture have been used as a replacement for a luxated IOL or as rescue therapy when the lens is luxated. The technique has been clearly described but can carry 2 issues: The suture remains over the sclera and the knot, due to its thickness, is not easily buried inside the eye and often requires enlargement of sclerotomy, making leakage more frequent. In this video, Dr. Carlos Mateo describes how to overcome these 2 problems.
