The article reports on the increased use of the sutureless intrascleral haptic fixation technique on posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL). Experts claim that this technique improves posterior chamber IOLs' long-term stability. Prior to the development of the sutureless method, posterior chamber IOLs are sutured in the back of the iris or the capsular bag, but this is not possible in cases where there is insufficient capsule or when there is trauma, aniridia or loss of zonular integrity.
