Abstract: 

Purpose: To evaluate the efficacyand safety of aniridiaposterior chamber IOL in traumatic aniridia in vitrectomized eye.
Materials and Methods: Participants were three patients who had undergone secondary implantation of an aniridia PCIOL; two patients were men and one woman with mean age of 40 years. There was previous ocular trauma followed by pars plana deep vitrectomy due to vitreous hemorrhage or retinal detachment resulting in aniridia. Minimum follow-up was 7 month.
Results: Best corrected visual acuity improved in two patients and was unchanged in one case. All eyes achieved the desired anatomic results. Glare was subjectively reduced in all patients. Contrast sensitivity and visual function improved dramatically in two patients. One case developed secondary glaucoma requiring cyclophotocoagolation. No patients developed chronic uveitis or redetachment.
Conclusion: The aniridia PCIOL can overcome aphakia reduce glare, increase visual function and contrast sensitivity in vitrectomized eyes with traumatic aniridia. Although this lens appears safe, some disadvantages are secondary glaucoma and reduced visibility of the peripheral fundus. Caution should be used in its implantation until more patients with longer follow-up are studied.
