SST-IOL technique: Given the risk of anisometropic amblyopia, a second 3-piece IOL was placed in the right eye as a piggyback lens in SST-IOL fashion. A silicone IOL (Bausch & Lomb LI61AO, Bridgewater, NJ) was used to decrease IOL interface opacification or fibrosis risk. The same technique as outlined above was used except that the ciliary sulcus-based sclerotomies were placed at 3- and 9-o' clock and were made 1 mm, not 1.5 mm, from the limbus. This is the first report of SST-IOL placed in piggyback fashion to our knowledge.
