A 10-year-old male underwent secondary flanged intrascleral fixation of intraocular lens (IOL) using modified Yamane technique a year ago. However, the patient presented with sudden onset diminution of vision. On slit-lamp examination, there was dislocation of lens with one haptic still flanged to the sclera [Figure 1]a. On fundus examination, the lens was seen hanging in the vitreous cavity, and the retinal vessels beneath the lens were seen to be magnified [Figure 1]b.
|Figure 1: (a) Bi-microscopic examination of the anterior segment shows flanged intrascleral haptic of intraocular lens (IOL) (arrow). (b) Dislocated IOL was seen in the vitreous cavity suspended from a flanged haptic, giving the appearance of a hanging man. The partially cauterized (arrowhead) end of another haptic could be seen lying in the vitreous cavity. Vessels beneath the lens are magnified due to the biconvex nature of the lens|

Flanged intrascleral fixation has gained popularity among surgeons as it offers the advantage of being sutureless and does not require the use of glue. However, improper cauterization and technique may lead to late onset dislocation or subluxation of the lens.
