Clinical Alert Details

Unregulated cosmetic iris implants being inserted outside the United States and European Union are causing severe ocular complications in many patients. Unlike functional artificial iris devices, which are designed to be placed in the capsular bag or ciliary sulcus of pseudophakic eyes (i.e., Morcher, HumanOptics, Ophtec), “color changing” iris implants are being placed into the anterior chamber of young phakic patients, over a healthy iris, and in direct contact with angle structures.
