• Management of recurring hyphemas associated with posterior chamber intraocular lenses may include a combination of medical, laser, and surgical modalities. Miotic and laser therapies have often failed, and surgical treatment has primarily relied on removal of the offending lens. We describe herein a method for rotation of the intraocular lens that provides an effective means of preventing one form of recurrent intraocular hemorrhage.
