Figure 1: Complete vitrectomy is performed and all vitreous strands and capsular remnants around the intraocular lens haptic are cleared (a). For the sutured technique, an intraocular forceps is used to carry a “lasso” knot (inset, b) into the vitreous cavity and snare the intraocular lens haptic (b). For the sutureless technique, intraocular forceps is used to grasp the haptic tip and externalize the haptic (arrow, 1c)
