This is a case of a refixation of a partially dislocated CZ70BD lens that had been sutured to the sclera with Prolene (polypropylene sutures, Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Inc, Somerville, NJ) 10 years ago. One of the Prolene sutures had broken, while the other was still intact.

The physician refixates the loose haptic with a GORE-TEX (W.L. Gore & Associates, Inc, Newark, DE) suture and cuts the intact Prolene suture and replaces it with another GORE-TEX suture.
