Artificial Iris

Dr. Lee is one of the first surgeons in the country to be invited to implant the CustomFLEX (R) ArtificialIRIS implant.  This artificial iris device received FDA approval in 2018 and is a custom-made, hand-colored prosthesis to treat serious iris defects.  This includes full or partial aniridia from conditions such as congenital aniridia and acquired defects such as trauma or surgery.

Patients suffering from light sensitivity or glare from large iris defects may benefit from the CustomFLEX, which also has a good cosmetic appearance.  The prosthesis is matched to the other eye in patients with unilateral iris defects, while patients with bilateral aniridia may choose their eye color.

Please contact Dr. Lee if you are interested in a consultation to see if you are a candidate for this device.
