Pupillary capture of implantable contact lens after blunt trauma.
ABSTRACT A 33-year-old woman visited our clinic with blurry vision and periorbital swelling after experiencing blunt trauma to left eye. Ten months earlier, she had implantable contact lens (ICL) implantation in the left eye. Biomicroscopic examination showed that that 1 footplate of the ICL was entrapped in the pupillary aperture at the 7 o'clock position and the ICL was placed vertically. The patient had limited ocular movement in lateral gaze, and the computed tomography showed a medial orbital wall fracture. Pupillary capture of the ICL was surgically corrected with an iris manipulator under topical anesthesia. After the ICL was repositioned, the patient's uncorrected visual acuity was restored to 20/32, as before the injury. Pupillary capture of the ICL may occur after blunt ocular trauma.

ABSTRACT: A 27-year-old woman had implantation of an angle-supported phakic intraocular lens (pIOL) for myopia in the left eye in 2003. Moderate iris atrophy and pupil ovalization were noted in 2005. In 2006, the eye was hit by a plastic bullet shot from a toy gun. The pupil became distorted as the inferior haptic engaged the pupil edge. Visual acuity was not affected. Surgical repositioning was uneventful, yielding a round pupil with no damage to the iris sphincter or the lens. The endothelium was not affected by the trauma or surgery. Previous iris atrophy may have facilitated pupillary capture because of reduced iris elasticity and pupil ovalization by the haptic. Blunt trauma can dislocate angle-supported pIOLs. Implantation of these IOLs should be discouraged in patients who perform activities that put them at risk for eye trauma.Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery 01/2007; 32(12):2133-4. · 2.53 Impact Factor
