Summary of Content
Materials:1. 26G, 1.5 inch needle
2. 10-0 prolene with curved needle at one end and straight needle at the other end
Method : The 10-0 prolene is passed across the posterior chamber using a 26 G 1.5 inch needle without any rail roading or hand shaking inside the eye.Single passage of the needle is enough even for double suture fixation.So minimum manipulations,minimum time consuming and minimum possible complications.IOL is fixed exactly at 180 degrees, so no chance of lens tilt.Materials used are freely available and of low cost.
