1264: Yamane IOL fixation step-by-step

Our guest surgeon, Dr Utku Limon from Turkey, does a great job of performing the Yamane IOL fixation technique where the haptics of a three-piece IOL are brought through the sclera and then a flange is created to secure the haptic within a tunnel. This works very well with some caveats: you must be very gentle with the IOL since you can dis-insert the haptics, some haptic materials work better than others, and you must do a thorough anterior vitrectomy before attempting this technique. This video will take you step-by-step through the procedure and you will learn some excellent pearls to help you succeed in learning this technique.
