Removal of Posteriorly Dislocated Intra-ocular Lens and Replacement with New Posterior Chamber Intraocular Lens. This 70 year-old woman noticed sudden vision loss 2 years following cataract surgery. Her flexible lens implant had dislocated posteriorly. After a month, the intra-ocular lens was still mobile inside her eye. It was decided to remove the lens. There was enough capsular support for a larger, stiffer intraocular lens to be placed behind the iris in the "sulcus". This surgery was done under local anesthesia.
