Abstract

We report the use of a custom hand painted iris implant, which offers outstanding cosmetic results in the treatment of aniridia. In the past artificial Irides has been a poor match to the healthy eye and of limited cosmetic benefit. This artificial iris produced by Dr. Schmidt Intraocularlinsen GmbH, Germany is fully customized with handmade colour composition, which structurally matches the appearance of natural iris restoring the aesthetic appearance with higher patient satisfaction.

CONCLUSION:

Custom made artificial iris is an excellent product, which gives patients a cosmetically normal looking eye and better quality of life.
