PURPOSE: The purpose of the study is to report the outcomes of sutureless, glueless multipiece posterior chamber intraocular lens (PCIOL) as scleral fixated intraocular lens (SFIOL) implantation in patients with poor or no posterior capsular support. METHODS: Medical records of 45 eyes of 42 patients who underwent SFIOL implantation where no suture or glue was used to fixate intraocular lens (IOL) to the sclera from November 2016 to October 2017, with minimum 18 months of follow-up were retrospectively analyzed. The best-corrected visual acuity, indication of surgery, other significant eye examination findings, and complications were analyzed. RESULTS: Out of 42 patients, 62% were males and 38% were females. Mean age of subjects was 48.5 ± 16.5 years (range 13–79 years). Mean preoperative and postoperative visual acuity was 1.48 ± 0.6 Logarithm of the Minimum Angle of Resolution (logMAR) units and 0.6 ± 0.3 logMAR units, respectively. Most common complication was vitreous hemorrhage six eyes (13.3%) followed by postoperative hypotony in five eyes (11.11%). Other complications such as transient postoperative intraocular pressure rise, hyphema, tilted IOL, cystoid macular edema, retinal detachment were also noted. CONCLUSION: Multipiece PCIOL used as SFIOL without any sutures and glue is a viable, cost-effective method of IOL implantation in eyes with aphakia following surgical complication or trauma, with comparable outcome to other techniques of SFIOL implantation.
