A dislocated intraocular lens usually results in blurry vision, glare, and haloes.

Cataract surgery involves the removal of a patient’s original, cloudy lens and replacement with a clear artificial lens called an intraocular lens implant. Sometimes, these lens implants can move out of position, causing a decrease in vision.

Dislocation of an intraocular lens can be complete or partial (subluxation). Restoration of vision can be achieved through surgical repositioning or replacement of the dislocated lens. In all cases of painless loss of vision, an ophthalmologist should perform a complete ocular examination to ensure that your cataract lens implant has not shifted out of position.
