Today, both Aphakic eyes problem and defective intraocular lenses replacement problem, have changed considerable since the Yamane described secondary IOL implantation using intrascleral fixation of a sulcus-based 3-piece IOL with haptics-end modification by applying high-temperature cautery to create bulbous flanged tips. This method has replaced worldwide the use of scleral flaps, scleral sutures, glued intraocular lenses or any other lenses model such as Artisan Iris claw lenses to address the problem of Aphakia in general.
