The surgical reconstruction of eyes with iris defects is almost invariably complex and challenging. A number of prosthetic iris devices are available including large-incision, rigid diaphragm, aniridic intraocular lens style devices, small-incision devices incorporating a capsular ring, and flexible, customized, small-incision iris prostheses. The surgical techniques for rehabilitation are dictated by the configuration of the iris defect, the presence of concurrent ocular pathology, and the functional complaint of the patient. Successful rehabilitation requires careful surgical planning and appropriate patient selection. Nonetheless, endowed with the modern surgical armamentarium, the reconstructive surgeon may achieve significant functional and cosmetic improvement.
