We report a case in which a dexamethasone implant (Ozurdex) that had been injected by accident was recovered and relocated from the crystalline lens to the vitreous. Low-vacuum low-infusion phacoemulsification was performed to prevent posterior capsule rupture. An intraocular lens was placed in the bag. The fragments of the dexamethasone implant were inserted intravitreally via the pars plana through a 23-gauge microcannula. Vitrectomy was not required. The therapeutic effect of the relocated implant was noted after the procedure. Financial Disclosure: No author has a financial or proprietary interest in any material or method mentioned.
