Focal Points 2018 Module: Surgical Management of Congenital and Acquired Iris Abnormalities

Focal Points 2018 Module: Surgical Management of Congenital and Acquired Iris Abnormalities
Iris abnormalities, both congenital and acquired, may cause significant visual challenges. Patients with iris defects present unique surgical challenges because the implantation of a traditional intraocular lens (IOL) may cause additional glare, photophobia and polyopia.

This Focal Points module reviews the common causes of, and the steps to efficiently assess iris defects. Various repair techniques and possible complications after an iris defect repair are also discussed.

Complete this module to:

  • Summarize the common symptoms of patients with iris defects.
  • Discuss goals for treatment of an iris defect.
  • Gain proficiency in assessing iris defects and their impact on the patient.
  • Describe various techniques and devices to repair iris defects.
  • Describe complications that can arise from use of an iris prosthesis.
