The aesthetics of iris reconstruction

A study evaluated the aesthetic outcome of iris reconstruction using a custom-made artificial iris prosthesis in patients with traumatic partial or total aniridia. The results showed good aesthetic outcomes, with patients, eye doctors, and laymen rating the overall aesthetic outcome highly. Pupil centration was a key factor correlating with aesthetic satisfaction, and the artificial iris was slightly brighter than the residual iris and fellow eye iris.
