A 31-year-old man with high axial myopia and strabismus fixus convergens underwent bilateral refractive lens exchange followed by a squint surgery (bilateral superior partial Jensen's procedure and medial rectus recession). After one year he presented with traumatic anterior dislocation of the sulcus fixated posterior chamber polymethyl methacrylate lens. The lens was dialed back into the ciliary sulcus without any complications. This case highlights the importance of implanting an intraocular lens (IOL) in-the-bag. If the IOL needs to be implanted in the sulcus, a larger diameter of the IOL with larger optic size and overall length is desirable, especially in highly myopic eyes.
