We hereby describe the correct method to perform a "handshake technique" and easy transfer of haptics from one hand to another for glued intrascleral fixation of an intraocular lens (glued IOL). The procedure was implemented in 57 cases that necessitated the application of performing a glued IOL procedure and it resulted in an appropriate and easy externalization of haptic in all the cases. The surgeons' positioning with reference to the scleral flap is an essential component and the surgeon should always be positioned perpendicular to the plane of scleral flaps and the plane of haptic maneuver. The surgeons who intend to perform glued IOL should adopt this technical point.
