What is Phakic IOLs?

Phakic IOLs are clear implantable lenses that are surgically placed either between the cornea and the iris (the colored portion of your eye) or just behind the iris, without removing natural lens. Phakic lenses enable light to focus properly on the retina for clearer vision without corrective eyewear. Implantable lenses function like contact lenses to correct nearsightedness. The difference is that phakic IOLs work from within the eye instead of sitting on the surface of eye.

• Patients with high myopia • Patients whom LASIK, PRK or RLE generally are not suitable

Before deciding to have phakic intraocular lens implantation surgery, patients will need an initial examination to make sure their eye is healthy and suitable for surgery. The doctor will take a complete medical history and eye health and perform a thorough examination of both eyes, which will include measurements of pupils, anterior chamber depth (the distance between cornea and iris), and endothelial cell counts (the number of cells on the back of cornea). If the patient wear contact lenses, the doctor may ask to stop wearing them before the initial examination (from the day of to a few weeks before).
