Abstract

Purpose: : To report the short term outcomes and complications of iris-fixated posterior chamber intra-ocular lenses (PCIOLs) in the pediatric population.

Methods: : Retrospective observational case study of 12 consecutive pediatric patients (17 eyes) who underwent placement of foldable iris-sutured PCIOLs between September 2004 and September 2007 by two refractive surgeons at a single academic center. Outcome measures included change in visual acuity and complications.

Results: : Iris-sutured intraocular lenses were more likely to become dislocated in patients with a history of ectopia lentis due to Marfan's syndrome, hereditary, or idiopathic etiology than in patients with aphakia due to other etiologies (45% vs. 0%) in our series. Mean postoperative best corrected visual acuity improved by 0.44 (logMAR) from baseline. One eye suffered a retinal detachment.

Conclusions: : Iris fixated intraocular lenses are an acceptable option for pediatric patients to correct aphakia, but can dislocate spontaneously. Visual outcomes are good regardless of disclocation.
