Purpose: To investigate the effects of retropupillary Iris claw lens implantation in patients with inadequate posterior capsule in terms of visual outcome, endothelial cell loss, and complications.
Methods: Sixty-six patients who had retropupillary iris claw lenses implanted in eyes with posterior capsule deficit participated in this prospective study.
Results: The mean PreopLogMAR was 0.5338, and at 3 months postoperatively, it had improved to 0.3149. In 36 patients (54.54 %), macular oedema was noted; in 24 patients (36.36 %), pigment dispersion was noted. Disenclavation was observed in none of the case.
Conclusion: Retropupillary Iris Claw lens implantation is a quick, affordable, predictable, safe, and operation that can produce good visual results with few problems.
