We read with interest the letter by Dr Fry. It is quite possible that a.12 forceps could be another source of scratch marks on an acrylic intraocular lens. In these cases, one would expect to see 1 line and not 2, as was described in our case.The modifications in Dr Fry's technique are important, namely, to enlarge the wound as well as to avoid contact between the intraocular lens implant and a device that could scratch it.
