We describe a new suture-free technique for fixating the capsular bag in patients with ectopia lentis. In this technique, we perform the capsulorhexis by femtosecond laser, insert a standard capsular tension ring (CTR) to redistribute capsular forces, and hydroprolapse the nucleus to the anterior chamber, leaving the capsular bag free of tension, as the phaco is performed above the iris plane. Finally, we use a 5.0 polypropylene suture in a capsular tension segment (CTS) to fixate the subluxated capsular bag in the sclera using a flanged method on both sides of the polypropylene without knots.
