Sulcus Intraocular Lens Haptic Amputation

Video of amputation of the displaced inferonasal haptic while the patient was under monitored anesthesia care. Viscoelastic was injected into the anterior chamber, and a single iris retractor was used to temporarily pull the iris away from inferonasal haptic. Horizontal microscissors and forceps were used to cut and explant the displaced haptic. The viscoelastic was removed from the anterior chamber with bimanual irrigation and aspiration, and the paracentesis wounds were hydrated.
