Abstract
Implantation of multipiece intraocular lens (IOL) has been evolving over time. Earlier, it was implanted using the holder-folder system. With the advent of new injector system all the IOLs are now implanted with these systems. Injecting the multipiece IOL is not as smooth and easy as a single piece IOL. We herein describe a technique of implantation of multipiece IOL in the ciliary sulcus by rotation of wrist using the injector system. It provides a smooth implantation of the IOL and minimizes the risk of complications as well as damage to the IOL.
