Secondary implants and fixation
For the correction of postoperative aphakia, we prepared an offer of secondary implants including intra-sclera and intra-iris fixation. The latter is particularly noteworthy, since it allows to implant foldable lens from a small cut, such as for cataract surgery. Suturing of the lens into the iris is carried out .The lens is placed in the posterior chamber of the eye, like in standard cataract surgery.. This treatment reduces postoperative complications and astigmatism.
It is also possible to perform iris plastic surgery, and even artificial implantation of artificial iris into the eye, which is especially important in cases of heavy photophobia.
For patients who do not have the lens implanted during cataract surgery, we suggest such an implantation, and in special cases if there is no proper support for the lens, we recommend lens implantation with suturing it to the sclera or iris.
Intra-iris fixation has many advantages – it allows to perform foldable lens implantation , and thus reduces the size of the cut, and reduces operation risk. It also decreases the size of postoperative astigmatism.
