abstract

  • Two patients developed uveitis-glaucoma-hyphema syndrome secondary to implantation of handmade anterior chamber intraocular lenses (IOLs). The IOLs were designed and made by the patients' ophthalmologists in their native Ukraine. The cases illustrate innovative and unusual solutions to the shortage of quality IOLs in the developing world and the challenging management of patients who present with complications arising from these IOLs.
