We describe a novel technique to manage silicone oil (SO) migration into the anterior chamber (AC) in a phakic eye. A 57-year-old female patient underwent right lens-sparing pars plana vitrectomy for diabetic tractional retinal detachment with SO tamponade. Postoperatively, a large bubble of SO was detected in the AC. The case was managed with the intraoperative displacement of the SO bubble using an ophthalmic viscoelastic device, phacoemulsification, and insertion of a capsular tension ring with an opening directed toward 6 o'clock position. The insertion of the capsular tension ring in this particular position prevented further migration of SO into the AC.
