Abstract

Abstract A combined three-part procedure to permit aphakic patients with full iridectoinies to receive secondary anterior chamber intraocular lens implants is described. Pars plana vitrectomy leaves the anterior chamber free of vitreous, thus preparing the eye for the iridoplasty and implant. Iridoplasty is performed using a special micro needle that permits good visualization in the eye. The results of ten cases are discussed.
