Abstract

Purpose:: This is a report on the long term follow up of patients who had received black diaphragm intraocular lens implantation after traumatic aniridia.

Methods:: This is a retrospective study on the long term follow up for more than 50 months of 6 patients who had received black diaphragm intraocular lens implantation after traumatic aniridia.

Results:: Out of 6 eyes that we were able to follow up for an average period of 7 years and 8 months(50-115months), bullous keratopathy ocurred in 4 eyes, glaucoma in 3 eyes, extropia in 2 eyes and cystoid macular edema in 1 eye. We performed penetrating keratoplasty in 2 of the 3 eyes suffering from bullous keratopathy, and a Ahmed valve implantation in 2 of the eyes suffering from glaucoma. After the operation, an improvement in visual acuity of greater than 2 letters according to the Snellen chart occurred in 3 eyes and no visual acuity decline groups were present.

Conclusions:: The authors recommend care in use of black diaphragm intraocular lens because we also observed severe complications such as bullous keratopathy and glaucoma during long-term follow up.
