The Microprobe endoscopic laser permits excellent visualization of the ciliary processes. However, the surgeon can not simultaneously view through the probe and see the probe’s location in the eye through the surgical microscope. An iris adhesion with the probe led to total aniridia in the case reported. Having an assistant watch the operative monitor or devising a system that allows the surgeon to watch both monitors could prevent this complication. © Williams & Wilkins 1998. All Rights Reserved.
