Abstract Purpose: To report a case who showed repeated dislocation of in-the-bag inserted intraocular lens(IOL)needing eventual removal of IOL with the lens capsule.

Case and Clinical Course: A 34-year-old male received cataract surgery with IOL implantation in the left eye. He had received similar surgery in the right eye 2 years before. He had had atopic dermatitis since childhood and had the habit to rub his face. He sought medical repositioning of IOL. The IOL dislocated another one month later, needing implantation of IOL of larger size. IOL dislocated again 2 years later so that IOL was removed together with the lens capsule. The removed lens capsule showed no opacity or proliferation. The right eye has been doing well throughout.

Conclusion: The present case seems to suggest that proliferation of lens capsule is essential in the proper fixation of inserted IOL.
