    In this video presented during the Retinaws symposium at the 2011 Annual Meeting, Dr. Ehab El Rayes explains his use of an iris claw lens to manage cases of aphakia or dislocated IOLs. During complicated vitreoretinal surgeries, Dr. El Rayes prefers the iris claw lens to a sulcus-fixated IOL, and typically places the lens behind the iris rather than in the anterior chamber to avoid contact with the endothelium.
