Lyubomyr M. Lytvynchuk et al reported the rate and management of intra- and early postoperative complications of bag-in-the-lens intraocular lens (IOL) implantation technique for cataract treatment. According to this retrospective non-randomized observational consecutive case series single-centre study, vitreous prolapse and anterior capsule rupture were the most common intraoperative events with 28.9% and 13.3%, respectively. A relatively low rate of intra and postoperative complications, including rare cases of visual axis reo-pacification, was linked to the implementation of bag-in-the-lens technique in the treatment of paediatric cataract. During the learning curve, proper management of complications specifically related to the bag-in-the-lens IOL implantation technique must be considered.
