Modified implantation of black diaphragm intraocular lens in traumatic aniridia.


We describe a modified technique of black diaphragm intraocular lens (IOL) implantation in eyes with traumatic aniridia, aphakia, and previous vitrectomy. During black diaphragm IOL implantation, a double-armed 10-0 polypropylene suture is used to fixate the IOL in the ciliary sulcus. Two 10-0 polypropylene sutures are subsequently placed in front of the IOL to block its forward displacement and thus prevent its contact with the anterior chamber angle and corneal endothelium. This modified implantation technique reduces long-term complications following black diaphragm IOL implantation in patients with traumatic aniridia.No author has a financial or proprietary interest in any material or method mentioned.
