Condition intraocular lens dislocation
Treatments intraocular lens repositioning by scleral suturing, intraocular lens exchange with retropupillary iris-claw lens
Sponsor Oslo University Hospital
Start date January 2013
End date June 2016
Trial size 104 participants
Trial identifier NCT01784926, 2012/1981


In this prospective, randomized study The investigators will include 80 patients with late intraocular lens (IOL) dislocation in the capsular complex, after cataract surgery. To obtain normal visual function, these patients needs surgery. Today, there are two different methods used for this condition; scleral suturing of the capsular complex or exchange of IOL to an iris-fixated IOL (Verisyse). In this study the investigators will look for advantages and dis-advantages for these two methods.
