This report illustrates the surgical approach to and results of a complex iris reconstruction. The presentation and long-term visual and architectural results (follow-up of 4 years) of the repair of a severe anterior segment injury after entry into the anterior chamber by a microkeratome during laser in situ keratomileusis is described. The techniques used in the repair are described in detail, and a historical review of iris repair techniques is presented.
