BACKGROUND/AIMS: The purpose of this study was to compare and evaluate the visual outcome and complications of various techniques of secondary intraocular lens (IOL) (i.e., anterior chamber IOL [ACIOL], suture-fixated posterior chamber IOL [PCIOL], and glue-fixated PCIOL). STUDY DESIGN AND SETTING: This was a randomized, prospective, interventional, comparative, clinical trial study. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Patients of either sex having aphakia and lacking posterior capsular support were included in the study, and patients having corneal or scleral pathology, optic atrophy, uncontrolled glaucoma, retinal detachment, and other retinal pathology were excluded from the study. The patients were divided into three groups after comprehensive ophthalmological examination – Group A (secondary ACIOL) included 44 patients, Group B (secondary scleral-fixated sutured PCIOL) included 32 patients, and Group C (fibrin glue-fixated sutured PCIOL) included 34 patients. RESULTS: A total of 110 patients were included in this study, of which 59 (53.63%) were males and 51 (46.37%) were females. The best-corrected visual acuity (VA) after 6 weeks was in the range of 20/60–20/40 in 36.4% of Group A and 40.6% of Group B patients. In Group C, 52.9% of patients had best-corrected VA in the range of 20/30–20/20. The overall complications were less in glued PCIOL group. CONCLUSION: It can be concluded that fibrin glue-assisted PCIOL implantation provides better visual outcome with minimal complications in eyes with deficient capsular support.
