Correcting post-traumatic aniridia and aphakia


Case reports highlighting 'open sky' scleral fixated iris shield IOL implantation

The loss of the iris-lenticular structure involves several consequences such as secondary glaucoma, retinal detachment and corneal dystrophy.

Therefore, we have highlighted three cases below, demonstrating simultaneous correction of both post traumatic aphakia and aniridia combined with penetrating keratoplasty. These cases were chosen among more than a dozen similar ones we had been treating over the last three years. Current therapeutic approaches allow the reduction of surgical trauma, by reducing the post-op complications, and attempt to restore the globe anatomy.

Case reports

Case number 1

After about one year, the corneal suture was removed. At present the visus of the eye undergoing surgery is 2/10 and cannot improved by correction.
