    An 88-year-old female with pseudoexfoliation syndrome presented with sudden vision loss and was found to have a dislocated one piece intraocular lens (IOL) that was resting on the retina. She underwent 23-gauge pars plana vitrectomy, IOL explantation, and anterior chamber IOL insertion. Intraoperative optical coherence tomography (EnFocus iOCT; Leica, Wetzlar, Germany) was used to assess the position and vault of the IOL on the retinal surface [Figure 1] a. Utilization of iOCT enabled the surgeon to safely grasp the IOL with forceps in the location with the greatest vault in order to minimize any potential trauma to the retina [Figure ...
