Abstract Details



Purpose:

To discuss the use of the iris-fixated IOL in aphakic eyes. There are several indications possible post trauma or unusual situations (Marfan, deformed iris, uncomplete aniridia, congenital cataract), peroperatively (cataract surgery with capsular tear where both in-the-bag and sulcus position are compromised) or postoperatively (piggy-back solution of undercorrecting IOL).

Setting:

St-Godfriedstraat 8, 3800 Sint-Truiden, Belgium

Methods:

We studied all our cases in our 25 years of experience where an aphakic iris-fixated lens was used and what result were obtained.

Results:

In cases where the aphakic iris-fixated IOL was used after capsular rupture the patients rarely complain and obtained good vision. In cases where there is a combination of iris repair and aphakic iris-fixated IOL, results are good and the patient is very, and sometimes even, extremely satisfied.

Conclusions:

The aphakic iris-fixated IOL is an excellent solution for unusual cases and for rare and challenging cases. The results obtained were excellent and patients were very satisfied.
