Scleral-fixated posterior chamber intraocular lenses (SFIOL) are an attractive option for optical correction of aphakia in people with ectopia lentis. Postoperative intraocular lens (IOL) tilt/decentration have been reported in 5–10% of eyes that undergo SFIOL implantation.1 2 We report the case of a boy with aniridia who underwent SFIOL implantation and had intraoperative IOL tilting, and the management of intraoperative tilting.
A 16-year-old boy had been diagnosed at 4 weeks of age to have bilateral aniridia with almost completely absent irides, ectopia lentis, anterior polar cataracts, macular hypoplasia and nystagmus.
