Abstract The Boston keratoprosthesis (KPro) has been used successfully in eyes with poor prognosis for conventional penetrating keratoplasty. However, postoperative changes in iris configuration after Boston KPro may occur, including iris obstruction of the Boston KPro, limiting visual potential in otherwise successful transplants. We describe our technique of argon laser iridoplasty after Boston KPro as a safe and effective procedure to treat visually significant optic obstruction and as a less-invasive alternative to surgical intervention.
