Jagat and Bala intraocular lens supporting system: An artificial platform for intraocular lens implantation in an aphakic patient with inadequate capsular support

Indian J Ophthalmol. 2021 Jun;69(6):1618-1622. doi: 10.4103/ijo.IJO_3240_20.


We describe a novel device, Jagat and Bala Intraocular lens Supporting System (JBISS), an artificial Intraocular lens (IOL) platform that facilitates IOL fixation in an aphakic patient with poor capsular support and also facilitates IOL exchange in case of myopic shift or refractive surprise. Implantation of JBISS along with IOL was carried out in four patients and results are promising without any adverse events.

Keywords: Artificial capsular bag; IOL exchange; IOL supporting platform; artificial intraocular lens supporting device; exchangeable IOL device; scleral fixation of IOL in aphakia.
