Abstract

A 24-year-old man was involved in a high-velocity motor vehicle accident with polytrauma 2 years after implantation of a copolymer phakic IOL (pIOL) (Visian ICL). After being released from the intensive care unit, he reported decreased vision, pain, glare, and photophobia and was treated for hyphema without globe rupture. He was found to be aniridic during anterior chamber washout of the hyphema. In the first reported case, to our knowledge, of aniridia after pIOL placement, blunt trauma likely caused expulsion of the iris through dehiscence of the previously placed wound for pIOL implantation.
