Treatment of uniocular aphakia. A comparison of iris clip lenses with hard corneal contact lenses.


The visual results, stereopsis, and complications have been assessed on 50 patients in a presenile age group treated for uniocular aphakia. Twenty-five patients received a Binkhorst four-loop lens implant at the time of cataract surgery and 25 were offered a conventional hard contact lens trial postoperatively. The period of follow-up ranged from one to three years.
