Although no major breakthroughs have emerged in the area of lens insertion techniques and technology, small incremental advancements continue to take place for the placement of foldable intraocular lenses through small incisions. Folders have become more innovative in their ability to fold lenses effectively, and inserters have been downsized and enhanced to allow insertion through smaller incisions with more effective purchase of the lens. New cartridge injectors are increasing in popularity because of their ease of use and ability to pass through smaller incisions, especially with modifications. In addition, knowledge regarding techniques and complications of noncapsular supported intraocular lenses continues to increase, adding to our ability to choose the proper technique for secondary lens insertion in these selected patients.
