Abstract Details


To describe the long-term clinical results of the implantation of the Ophtec iris prosthetic system with simultaneous IOL implantation in 4 eyes of 4 patients with traumatic cataract and partial aniridia attributable to ocular trauma.


The eye treatment centre, Whipps Cross University Hospital, London, UK.


The electronic records of 4 patients were retrospectively reviewed. The nature and the extent of injury, age at IOL implantation, visual, refractive, and cosmetic outcome and complications were evaluated.


Mean follow-up period was 12 months (range, 6-16). Visual acuity improved in all eyes, complaints of photophobia were reduced, and a satisfactory cosmetic outcome was achieved in all patients. The mean spherical equivalent refractive error at the last follow-up was -0.50 ±0.50 D. No postoperative complications were observed.


The Ophtec Iris prosthetic system with simultaneous IOL implantation is an excellent choice for the treatment of aniridia and traumatic cataract due to penetrating ocular trauma. FINANCIAL DISCLOUSRE: NONE
