This article reports the case of a 27-year-old female patient with pigment dispersion syndrome (PDS) and corneal edema in both eyes after cosmetic iris implantation (BrightOcular, Anaheim, CA, USA) in an Indian eye clinic in order to change the eye color. Explantation of the implants was recommended 3 years after implantation and after developing PDS due to the high risk of developing glaucoma and because of corneal decompensation due to loss of corneal endothelial tissue. Postoperatively, traumatic, middle wide and irregular pupils were present.
