Purpose: To provide a literature review of implant related complications from bilateral NewColorIris implantation (Kahn Medical Devices, Panama City, Panama). Methods: A PubMed search of peer-reviewed ophthalmology journals for complications related to NewColorIris implants was performed. Results: Including a recent case published by the authors, a total of nine patients (18 eyes) with management of complications such as endothelial cell loss, elevated intraocular pressure (IOP), corneal edema, anterior chamber inflammation, decreased visual acuity, and cataract formation were reviewed. Conclusions: Sight-threatening complications including corneal decompensation, IOP elevation, uveitis, and hyphema have been described after NewColorIris implantation.
