Here, we report a case of 66-year-old female who came with a history of secondary aphakia due to the complication of cataract surgery in the left eye with a vision of HM + which is improving with pinhole to 6/9 and right eye PCIOL with a vision of 6/6, managed with new foldable acryflex T IOL (CM T FLEX) scleral fixated intraocular lens (IOL). Two partial-thickness limbal-based scleral flaps of 2.5 mm × 2.5 mm were created 180° apart; sclerotomies were made using 23G needle 1.5 mm away from the limbus. The new acryflex T–flex IOL implantation was performed through the 2.8 mm clear corneal tunnel incision, and T-shaped IOL haptics were externalized with the 23G forceps under the scleral flap. Fibrin glue was used to close the scleral flaps and conjunctiva. Postoperative period was uneventful; at the end of 1 month, the patient regained a good visual acuity of 6/6 (P) with a good stable centration of IOL.
