Abstract

Background: To report a new simplified surgical technique to manage small iris coloboma or traumatic iris defect.
Methods: A new surgical technique in which simplified pupilloplasty technique through only a clear corneal paracentesis to manage the iris coloboma or traumatic iris defect within the 120° range was designed. A retrospective revision of the medical records of patients treated with this technique between the years 2013 and 2016 was made. Six eyes of six patients with iris coloboma or traumatic iris defect treated with this new technique were included.
Results: All the operated eyes quickly recovered with central round pupil, negligible complications, inessential symptoms of photophobia and glare, and mild inflammation after a median follow-up time of 22 months (range: 6–34 months).
Conclusions: The simplified pupilloplasty technique presented here could be a good alternative for the management of small iris coloboma or traumatic iris defect.
