We describe herein a technique for locating the ciliary sulcus for suturing a posterior chamber intraocular lens. Transscleral illumination with a light-guide fiber placed underneath the iris reveals the ciliary sulcus as a bright area near the limbus, and it allows for a straight needle with 10–0 polypropylene fiber to be easily inserted through the sulcus after making two pairs of radial scleral incisions to fixate the 10–0 polypropylene fiber. We think that this procedure can minimize complications of suturing a posterior chamber intraocular lens and shorten the operation time.
