ABSTRACT
The article discusses the benefits of using fibrin glue wen implanting an intraocular lens (IOL). The goal of glued IOL is fixing a posterior chamber IOL in eyes with no capsule. This technique involves making two partial thickness scleral flaps followed by a sclerotomy with a needle from the limbus. In this technique, three-piece foldable IOLs with slightly firm haptics to a non-foldable IOL are ideal.
