    Scleral Fixation of Colored IOL for Traumatic Aniridia

    Cornea/External Disease

    Dr. Nurretin Akyol manages a case of traumatic aniridia, including repair of a corneal perforation and scleral fixation of a colored IOL. After the sclera is lifted, 10-0 polypropylene sutures are passed through a 23-gauge needle that entered the anterior chamber through the opened scleral flaps and are removed from the cornea at 12 o'clock. Once out of the cornea, the sutures are tied through the holes of the colored IOL haptics. The cornea is then expanded and the IOL is placed in the anterior chamber. The sutures are withdrawn from both sides and the lens is fixated.
