Dislocated Intraocular Lens (IOL)

View Video

Intraocular lens (IOL) dislocation occurs when the IOL moves from its normal central position behind the pupil. There are several possible causes of IOL dislocation and fortunately most are fixable. Treatment may involve observation if the symptoms are mild and the dislocation is unlikely to get worse. In more severe cases surgery is needed to reposition or replace the IOL.
