  • Publication number: 20140371852
    Abstract: A method is described for introducing a scleral fixation bag into an eye. The scleral fixation bag includes haptics that extend therefrom. The method includes inserting and affixing the haptics into sclerotomies formed in the eye; the haptics affix the scleral fixation bag without a need for natural capsular bag support. The haptics of the scleral fixation bag include a slender loop element and a distal hook portion that extends from a distal end of the slender loop element. The distal hook portion has an anterior edge tilted towards the central anterior-posterior axis of the scleral fixation bag.
