Phaco IOL With Iris Coloboma Repair

  Channels: Cataract Surgery, General | Posted 6/8/2012

Jason Jones, MD, shares a case of congenital inferior iris coloboma that he repaired at the time of cataract surgery. After breaking the posterior synechiae under viscoelastic, Dr. Jones retracts the iris with hooks. Coloboma cases require extra care, because the ciliary body and zonules may be compromised. After removing the dense nucleus and implanting an IOL, Dr. Jones sutured the iris sphincter to reapproximate the pupil to a more normal position.
