Ocular comorbidities of the aphakic eyes
were a corneal scar in four eyes, vitreoretinopathies in seven eyes, and posterior luxation of an originally sulcus-based three-piece foldable IOL (Canon-STAAR Preloaded IOL KS-3 (Ai) with a 6.0 mm optic and 12.5 mm tip-to-tip size) in one eye.
Ivastinovic et al evaluated limbal and pars plana approach of ROSO in aphakic eyes
and found the CED significantly decreased using both surgical methods (p<0.001).
Our results suggest that Ab-externo scleral fixation of an IOL was found to be one of the safe procedures showing a favorable postoperative visual outcome in Aphakic eyes
Primary sutures for the artificial iris fixation are recommended and necessary in cases with missing anterior and/or posterior device support, for example, in aphakic eyes
or absent of the lens capsules .

In silicone oil filled aphakic eyes
, inferior iridectomy was not needed in majority of cases due to coloboma of iris.
(64) detected no significant difference in the postoperative complication rates of 19 aphakic eyes
and 29 pseudophakic eyes, and demonstrated that pseudophakic eyes maintained better visual acuity up to 7 years postoperatively.

An important point of discussion that has largely been neglected by previous CME efficacy trials is the stringent exclusion criteria applied to the trial design.In the past, patients with comorbid conditions that increase the probability of developing CME in aphakic eyes
(eg, diabetes mellitus) have been excluded.
