Abstract

Artificial iris-lens diaphragm implantation effectively improved postoperative outcomes by correcting aphakia, reducing glare disability, and addressing cosmetic issues faced by iris-deficient, and aphakic or cataract patients. Although the iris-lens diaphragm appears to be safe, long-term results must be clarified in studies with longer follow-up and a larger patient population.
