We studied four angle-supported anterior chamber lenses whose optics and haptics were made of poly(methyl methacrylate). All four lenses had been removed from human eyes because of bullous keratopathy. Using light and electron microscopy, we compared the cellular reaction on the optics, which had been in the anterior chamber, with that on the haptics, which had been in touch with the iris stroma. A typical foreign body granuloma was seen around the haptics, while the optics were free of foreign body reaction.
