Iris-Fixation of IOL With Titanium Clips

January 24, 2010

Some surgeons are just plain brilliant. Tying the haptics to the iris really is no walk in the park. Instead, using a tiny titanium clip from the vascular surgeons, the haptics were easily clipped to the iris using a very simple clipper. Ta-da! Done. This needs to be tried in humans ASAP- almost certainly to be well-tolerated and easier on the eye.

  • Wonderful! Although I do occasionally enjoy the challenge of tying those iris sutures, I would definitely prefer something less time-intensive. Can you direct me to the source article?
