Abstract

PURPOSE:

To report 3 cases of simultaneous Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) and aphakic iris-fixated intraocular lens (IOL) implantation in patients with aphakia and bullous keratopathy.

METHODS:

We retrospectively documented the clinical characteristics of patients before and after simultaneous DSAEK and aphakic iris-fixated IOL implantation undergoing operation between November 2008 and September 2009.

RESULTS:

None of the cases showed any intraoperative complications. During the postoperative period, the corneal lenticule was clear and well-attached, and the iris-fixated IOL was well-positioned.

CONCLUSIONS:

Simultaneous DSAEK and aphakic iris-fixated IOL implantation can be used successfully and simultaneously in patients with aphakia and bullous keratopathy.
