Int Med Case Rep J. 2021 May 31;14:365-369. doi: 10.2147/IMCRJ.S316328. eCollection 2021.ABSTRACTWe are reporting a case of a 22-year-old lady with bilateral microphthalmia and microcornea, in which a modified technique for sutureless scleral fixated intraocular lens implantation provided a successful aphakic rehabilitation alternative with a good visual outcome and significant improvement in quality of life. Management of aphakia in microphthalmic eyes is challenging due to the anatomical abnormalities and limited literature on managing such cases. Visual rehabilitation for aphakia using contact lenses is limited by intolerance and poor lens fitting. Significant optical aberrations may limit aphakic spectacle use, further exacerbated in patients with nystagmus. Thus, secondary IOL implantation seems to be a reasonable rehabilitation alternative; however, it is surgically challenging in microphthalmic eyes.PMID:34104004 | PMC:PMC8180264 | DOI:10.2147/IMCRJ.S316328
