Purpose:

To evaluate the indications, the safety, and the results of retropupillary implantation of iris claw intra ocular lenses in the correction of aphakia

Patients and methods:

This retrospective study included 50 eyes of 50 patients who underwent retropupillary iris claw IOL fixation between January 2010 and January 2013.

Preoperative data collected included patients’ demographics, aetiology of aphakia as well as previous ocular history and preoperative visual acuity. We also analysed data pertaining to postoperative outcome.

We will present two demonstrative cases of a our technique for clipping the IOL posteriorly to the iris through a single paracentesis.

Results and conclusion:

Retropupillary iris lens fixation is a safe and effective method for the correction of aphakia in patients without capsule support or with posterior chamber lens luxation. For 6 years, this has been our preferred technique.
