Post-Traumatic Aniridia: Artificial Iris Combined with IOL Implantation

7: 00, Cesare Forlini, MD

Synopsis

Compared to cosmetic IOL and pupillary reconstruction, the artificial iris is a better solution.We show our strategy in suturing a foldable IOL on the back surface of the artificial iris to achieve a good cosmetic and refractive result in post-traumatic aniridia using the “open-sky” technique, and mini-invasive 25-23G system. In this way, damage to the iris and aphakia can be corrected.For non-“open sky” approach, the DSAEK glide was used for performing the artificial iris implantation.
