Abstract Details


Review the potential for and management of short- and long-term complications following implantation of a small aperture corneal inlay.


Private clinical practice, Toronto, Canada


Short- and long-term complications, including centration problems, poor vision, and haze or wound healing response, will be reviewed and appropriate surgical management strategies proposed.


Evolution in inlay implantation technique has reduced or eliminated many previously reported complications. Implantation in a deep stromal pocket (200-250┬Ám) has reduced the rate of haze and wound healing response to approximately 4% of cases, the majority of which can be resolved with corticosteroid treatment. Better centration techniques have reduced the need for repositioning. Aggressive management of ocular surface problems remains essential.


The rate of complications with corneal inlays has declined. With appropriate management, complications can be minimized.
