Phakic Intraocular
Lens Implants

Phakic intraocular lens implants are used to treat a wide range of myopia ± astigmatism, and hyperopia. Phakic intraocular lens implantation is a straightforward procedure that involves surgically inserting an additional lens into the eye to treat large refractive errors.

Implantable collamer lenses (ICL) are indicated for patients unsuitable for LASIK with extreme myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) or astigmatism. Phakic implants are the trusted option for correcting cases of severe nearsightedness that surgery is unable to treat.

What Is Phakic Intraocular Lens Implantation?

The phakic IOL procedure refers to the method of implanting silicon or plastic lenses directly into the eye. Once implanted, phakic lenses can correct refractive errors, and in the long term permanently reduce the need to wear glasses or contact lenses.

How Long Do Intraocular Lens Implants Last?

Phakic lens implants are designed to be permanent unless surgically removed – they are made to last a lifetime. As such, it is an ideal solution for children needing corrective therapy for higher degrees of myopia and other vision issues.

Are Phakic IOLs Safe?

Phakic IOL implantation is an FDA-approved procedure, and the lenses are made of materials that are biocompatible to your eyes. As with any other surgical procedure, it is important to understand the risks involved. It is also necessary to determine if you are a good candidate for phakic lenses by considering your specific vision issues as well as certain aspects of your career, personality, financial capacity and more. Your doctor will have a conversation with you about the limitations and benefits of this method to help you make the right decision.
