To discuss problems associated with the implantation of two Morcher iris diaphragm models.We describe the history, intraoperative complications, and postoperative complications of 5 patients with specific Morcher iris implants.We implanted Morcher 50D devices in 1 patient and Morcher 96S devices in 4 patients. Complications included postoperative rotation, device mis-sizing, difficult intraoperative rotation, zonular dehiscence, and intraoperative hemorrhage.Artificial iris implantation has a steep learning curve. With widespread availability on the horizon in the United States, the sharing of surgical experiences is key to achieving the best outcomes for patients.
