A 45-year-old otherwise healthy female was planned for pars plana vitrectomy for posteriorly dislocated intraocular lens (IOL). The subject had a 3-piece IOL inside the bag with the bag-IOL complex posteriorly dislocated [Figure 1]a. We planned to fixate the same IOL trans-sclerally for which we needed the haptics free out of the capsular bag. We devised a novel technique for the same. After adequate vitrectomy,[1] Chandelier-assisted bimanual peeling of the capsular bag off the IOL was done using two 25-gauge intravitreal forceps [Figure 1]b. The IOL was held in mid-vitreous cavity with one forceps and capsular bag peeled with the other [[Figure 1]c and [Figure 1]d, Video 1]

. After the IOL was free (retina protected with perfluorocarbon liquid (PFCL)- [Figure 1]e), the bag remnants were eaten up with vitrector. The same IOL was then fixed onto and through the sclera [Figure 1]f.

In usual scenarios, it is a single-piece IOL that finds its place inside the capsular bag. If such bag IOL complexes are posteriorly dislocated, they are explanted in toto. Refractive rehabilitation can be provided by an anterior chamber IOL, iris-claw lens, or scleral fixation IOL. A posteriorly dislocated single-piece IOL can be fixed to the sclera by using polypropylene sutures. When a 3-piece IOL finds its way into the posterior segment, it is usually bare and originates from an inadequate scleral sulcus where it was previously placed or a failed scleral fixation. Because haptics in these cases is bare, they can be fixated or refixated to the sclera.[2] Our case was unique in the fact that we had a 3-piece IOL inside the bag which was posteriorly dislocated. We freed it off the capsule with bimanual manipulation and proceeded with a normal scleral fixation.
