We reviewed the long-term results of implantation of posterior chamber intraocular lens (PC IOL) by suture fixation in 23 patients without zonular or capsular support. In terms of preoperative state, 15 were aphakic, 5 had cataracts and 3 were aphakic with concurrent corneal opacity. The latter had penetrating keratoplasty as well at the time of surgery. They were followed up for more than 1 year, and the best corrected vision remained the same or improved in all cases after surgery. The transscleral suture fixation-related complications included vitreous hemorrhage, hyphema and retinal detachment.
