Background/aims: To evaluate the efficacy, predictability, safety and complications of secondary iris-claw intraocular lens (IOL) implantation in aphakic eyes without capsular support.

Manifest refraction, uncorrected visual acuity, best-spectacle corrected visual acuity, biomicroscopy, tonometry, funduscopy and central endothelial cell count (cECC) were evaluated before surgery, and at yearly intervals up to 5 years.
