Dislocated Intraocular Lens

A dislocated intraocular lens occurs when the natural lens or intraocular lens implant falls from its normal position in the front of the eye backwards towards the retina. This can happen before or after cataract surgery.

Risk factors for dislocated lens include trauma, cataract surgery, and rare conditions such as pseudoexfoliation that lead to weakened lens support. Common symptoms of a dislocated lens are painless blurring of vision in one eye and double vision with the other eye closed.

Retina Care Consultants, P.A., is specialized in managing dislocated lenses. If you experience the symptoms mentioned above, consider having a dilated eye examination with an ophthalmologist. This exam may involve blood tests, photographs, or other specialized imaging tests of the retina. There are effective surgical treatments for a dislocated lens, so don’t delay your evaluation.
