Perforating injuries involving the anterior as well as the posterior segment of the eye count among serious conditions requiring several consequential surgical treatments. The anatomical and functional result is often monocular partial or total aniridia together with aphakia. One among the possibilities to correct this condition is the secondary implantation of the stenopeic aniridiae posterior chamber intraocular lens (PC IOL).

Key words:
eye injury, posttraumatic aphakia, aniridia, secondary implantation of the posterior chamber intraocular lenses
