To describe our results with HumanOptics IOL-Artificial complex in post traumatic aphakia and aniridia. Retrospective, single-surgeon chart review of cases in which aniridia and aphakia were corrected using HumanOptics IOL-Artificial complex sutured to the sclera with Gore-Tex sutures and coupled with the Akreos IOL (Bausch&Lomb). The authors present four cases of ocular trauma with globe rupture. For every patient, posterior vitrectomy was done and an artificial iris-lens diaphragm was sutured to the sclera. All patients had a good functional and cosmetic outcome. Surgical implantation of the HumanOptics IOL-Artificial complex coupled with the Akreos IOL was successful in alleviating post-trauma aphakia and aniridia related visual impairment.
