Phakic IOL

Phakic intraocular lenses are an excellent solution for the correction of refractive errors in patients in which the cornea status does not allow to perform LASIK surgery. Eye surgeons from around the world have implanted over 100,000 since 1986. This represents 2% of the refractive surgery done worldwide during this time. Phakic lens implants are appropriate for those patients who are not corneal-based refractive surgery candidates because they have very high myopia or corneas that are too thin to do corneal refractive surgery or have severe dry eye syndrome.
