Piggy back intraocular lenses. One was placed in the capsular bag and the other one in the ciliary sulcus.

  • Placing two artificial intraocular lenses (IOLs) in one eye after cataract removal surgery.
  • Indication:
    • Hyperopic eyes
    • Miscalculation of lens power which causes significant post-operative refractive error
    • Explantation or removal of previously implanted IOL is difficult and/or may cause greater risk
  • Slit lamp examination demonstrates two IOLs in either the same or two different anatomical section(s) such as in capsular bag, ciliary sulcus and/ or transclerally fixated lens.
