A controlled method of removing the Stableflex lens.

Abstract

It has been reported that the Stableflex lens, marketed by Optical Radiation Corporation, can be difficult to remove if one is not experienced with the procedure and the special characteristics of the lens. A new method, using the lens haptics as an aid in its removal, is described. This method is relatively atraumatic if the surgeon is familiar with the tendency of Stableflex lens loops to erode deeply into ocular tissues. Careful controlled amputation of the loops is necessary before the remaining portion of the loop is gently removed from tissue encapsulation.
