The 27-gauge needle-guided intrascleral IOL fixation technique with 8–0 absorbable sutures. a. Two one-half to two-thirds thickness limbal-based scleral flaps were created. b1. Absorbable suture was inserted into a 27-gauge round needle. b2. Almost all of the absorbable suture was inserted into a 27-gauge needle with only a small portion out of the needle for easy traction. c. The needle was used to create a sclerotomy at the 10 o’clock position under the previously created scleral flap. d. Forcep was used to grasp the 8–0 absorbable suture and externalize the suture through the previously created 3.0 mm corneal incision. e.f. 4 o’clock manipulation
