Abstract :

The ideal intraocular lens in cases of aphakia without capsular support is still debated. Choices include anterior chamber lenses, iris sutured lenses, scleral fixated lenses and iris-claw lenses, with the latter now being used more commonly. Iris claw lenses have undergone development in all aspects. The retro-pupillary approach for iris-claw intraocular lens (RPICIOL) implantation has recently gained popularity. The technique of fixation is time tested and addition of vaulting has improved its outcomes. They have now become the choice in compromised posterior capsule in different situations e.g., aphakia, dislocated intraocular lens, penetrating keratoplasty, traumatic mydriasis even coloboma iris. Iris claw intraocular lens implantation is clinically safe and effective primary or secondary procedure in cases with deficient posterior capsule or inadequate capsular support with minimal complication rate.
