A surgeon reported for a colleague that during intraocular lens (iol) implant surgery, there was a sudden ejection of the lens.
In a follow up from the implanting surgeon, it was reported that the lens suddenly ejected from the device causing a posterior capsular rupture with the lens going into the vitreous.
An anterior and posterior vitrectomy were performed.
The lens was left in place and exchanged in a secondary surgical procedure at a different facility.
The surgeon reported the event resolved following the lens exchange.
