The dexamethasone intravitreal implant poses a risk to the cornea if it migrates into the anterior chamber. Because it tends to fracture if grasped with surgical instruments, no-touch techniques represent the most successful means of removing the device from the eye. The present report describes a new approach in which the implant is aspirated into the lumen of a needle, providing the surgeon with greater control in accessing the device within the anterior chamber.
