To review the different techniques for management of dislocated intraocular lenses in eyes with insufficient capsular support with a focus on recent studies and techniques reported in the literature.
Visual outcomes generally improve regardless of intraocular lens selection and surgical techniques. New techniques include sutureless scleral fixation with the use of posterior segment tools and use of hybrid instrumentation for 25-/27-gauge vitrectomy.
IOL selection and surgical technique should be tailored to each patient based on the preexisting disorder that led to the dislocation. The decision ultimately depends on surgeon comfort and experience with the procedure, and the presenting pathology.
