    Cataract/Anterior Segment, Complications

    In this video, Dr. Ahmed Shalash describes a safe and easy technique for the removal of the BrightOcular cosmetic iris implant. Complications of cosmetic iris implants include chronic anterior iritis, angle-closure glaucoma, cataracts and corneal decompensation. These complications typically require immediate explantation of the device. Excessive manipulation during removal or removal as a whole may add more damage to an already injured eye. Dr. Shalash's technique involves cutting the implant into 5 parts, which results in less intraocular manipulation and no rotation of the implant.
