CRUZ IZQUIERDO, Dunia et al. Iris-sutured foldable lenses. Rev Cubana Oftalmol [online]. 2017, vol.30, n.1. ISSN 0864-2176.

There are several surgical techniques for the surgical correction of aphakia, which allow fixing foldable or rigid intraocular lenses in the posterior chamber by suturing them to iris or to ciliary sulcus. Under these circumstances, the surgeon will determine the time, the place and the type of lenses that is better to be implanted. This is a patient with traumatic aphakia in his left eye, with visual acuity without correction equals to hand movement at 1 m distance. He was performed a secondary implantation of a iris-sutured posterior chamber foldable intraocular lens. In the biomicroscopic exam of the left eye using the slit lamp, there was observed mean paralytic midriasis, dynamic refraction of +11,00 (0.6) and normal ocular pressure. He also underwent an indirect biomicroscopy with no alteration. After a month of his surgery, the best corrected visual acuity reached the vision unit. The complications found were ovalization of pupil and iris pigment depots in the intraocular lens.
