• T-fixation Technique Description: This is a new surgical technique that allows intrascleral fixation of a posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL) without sutures. The technique (the T-fixation technique) does not involve complicated intraocular manipulation and achieves safe sutureless fixation. First, a T-shaped incision is made in the sclera and a 23-gauge MVR knife is used to create the sclerotomy instead of a needle. The T-shaped incision eliminates the need to raise a lamellar scleral flap, while performing sclerotomy with the 23-gauge MVR knife simplifies extraction of the haptic and greatly improves wound closure. This technique is a method that achieves both anatomical and optical stability.
