Purpose: To study effects of Artisan iris fixated intraocular lens (IOL) on central corneal thickness (CCT) and intraocular pressure (IOP) in pediatric eyes with crystalline subluxated lenses. Materials and Methods: The study included 17 eyes undergoing Artisan aphakic IOL implantation after lensectomy for subluxated crystalline lenses. CCT and IOP measurements were recorded pre-operatively and post-operatively taking the mean of 4 post-operative visits. Patients were divided into Group A (n = 8) including patients with lensectomy and iris fixation of Artisan IOL as a primary procedure and Group B (n = 9) including patients in which lensectomy was carried out as a primary surgery and Artisan IOL fixation as a secondary procedure. Results: Children ranged in age from 08 years to 16 years, mean 11.59 ± 2.96 years. Follow-up period ranged from 7 months to 16 months, mean 11.24 months ± 4.27. Mean pre-operative and post-operative IOP in Group A was 14.88 ± 2.80 and 14.16 ± 0.59 respectively (P = 0.528). In Group B it was 12.44 ± 2.79 and 14.44 ± 1.15 respectively (P = 0.080). Mean pre-operative and post-operative CCT in Group A was 529.13 ± 24.23 and 529.87 ± 17.46 respectively (P = 0.674). In Group B it was 567.33 ± 29.13 and 568.83 ± 25.69 respectively (P = 0.859). Conclusions: Primary and secondary Artisan aphakic IOL implantation did not cause any significant changes in corneal thickness or IOP during the follow-up period.
