Abstract

Optical sector iridectomy has been used to clear the visual axis in cases of Peter’s anomaly. Visual outcome following optical iridectomy for Peter’s anomaly was found to be equivalent to that of keratoplasty. We have evaluated visual outcome after optical sector iridectomy in 17 patients of corneal opacities. In this study, an optical sector iridectomy was performed in the lower nasal or temporal quadrant of 17 eyes with corneal scars of which 16 achieved a visual acuity of 6/60 or better. The complications, which can occur during optical sector iridectomy, include postoperative hyphema, secondary glaucoma, and injury to the lens and cataract formation.
