    Other intraocular surgerys performed at the AECC include:

  • Iridectomy – Removal of a portion of the iris to eliminate an iris tumor
  • Anterior Lens Luxation – Removal of a lens that has shifted forward. The condition often causes discomfort and glaucoma. A lens that has
    shifted forward may be vision threatening and can necessitate emergency surgery.
  • Retinopexy – Laser and/or cryotheray may be used to seal, or wall off, small areas of retinal detachment. Large detachments or tears require vitroretinal surgery which is performed by a vitroretinal surgeon.
  • Intraocular prosthesis surgery – An alternative to eye removal as long as the cornea (front surface of the eye) is not ulcerated or dry. The contents of the eye are removed and a prosthesis is placed within the existing eye. The eye is fairly cosmetic and often maintenance free.
