Michael E. Snyder and Kristiana Neff
Iris defects such as congenital aniridia, ocular albinism, iris coloboma,
uveitis, trauma, or surgical misadventure face a unique challenge for the
ophthalmologist. Relatively conservative solutions like colored contact lenses, corneal
tattooing has limited results. In this chapter we will review the intraocular devices that
are currently marketed to the world ophthalmic community. A few cases will be
discussed for demonstrational purposes.
Aniridia, iris coloboma, uveitis, photophobia, iris prostheses, aniridia
implant, artificial iris, treatments.
