Fig. 2

Two cases with subluxation of an iris-fixated phakic anterior chamber lens. An Artisan/Verisyse a and Artiflex/Veriflex c subluxated due to de-enclavation of the temporal a and nasal c haptic. In the first case a + b, decision for explantation was made and a contact lens was fitted because the endothelium was too compromised for implantation of a new lens b. In the second case c + d the lens was replaced with a new one of the same model, as one of the haptics seemed to be deformed intraoperatively but endothelial cells seemed to be uncompromised d. Two prophylactic iridotomies at the superior iris are visible
