Comment

Iris

+

+++

As much of the iris as possible should be preserved; if excision cannot be avoided, concurrent or subsequent iridoplasty should be considered (see Chap. 2.6)

Ciliary body and choroid

(+)

+++

Because of the risk of hemorrhage, phthisis, and inflammation, excision is reserved for those rare cases where reposition is impossible

Lens

+++

-

Even a partially retained lens capsule can cause inflammation and contribute to destruction of the ciliary processes

Vitreous
