Abstract

The histopathological findings in five post-mortem eyes with anterior chamber and iris fixation intraocular lenses (IOLS) are discussed. The interval between lens insertion and death ranged from 3 1/2 to 52 months. Clinically the lenses were well tolerated and the surgery was considered to be successful. In one case a vitrectomy was required. Prominent histopathological features included reduced corneal endothelium (five cases), central cornea guttata (one case), dislocation of an anterior chamber IOL (one case), abnormalities of the filtration angle (five cases), non-granulomatous iritis (two cases), and iris atrophy and erosion (five cases).
