Perfluorocarbon Levitation of a Very Dense Crystalline Lens Migrated into Vitreous Cavity

Posted By: Thiago Mazzeo on January 12, 2023
This is a case of a patient with a very dense crystalline lens migrated into vitreous cavity due to past ocular trauma. We then performed PPV and conventional IOL scleral fixation technique. Due to the nucleus density, we opted for perfluorocarbon (PFC) lens levitation and removal through scleral tunnel instead of phacofragmentation with high ultrasound energy. After lens removal, we performed the IOL scleral fixation, removed all the PFC, and sutured the scleral tunnel and sclerotomies.
