 About Phakic IOL

Phakic IOLs (intraocular lenses) are an alternative to LASIK and PRK eye surgery for correcting moderate to severe myopia (nearsightedness), and in some cases produce better and more predictable vision outcomes than laser refractive surgery. Phakic IOLs are clear implantable lenses that are surgically placed either between the cornea and the iris (the coloured portion of your eye) or just behind the iris, without removing the 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 the 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 operation. 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 wears contact lenses, the doctor may ask to stop wearing them before the initial examination (from the day to a few weeks before).

The surgery will be completed in 15 minutes per eye. Numbing drops are applied to eyes prior to surgery to make the procedure comfortable and decrease the natural urge to blink. Also, a small device will hold the eyelids open during the procedure so that patients can’t accidentally blink.

 During Phakic IOL

There may be pain or a foreign body sensation, particularly during the first 48 hours after surgery, which is normal. Patients should be careful and not rub their eye. The surgeon may place a transparent protective shield over the eye to help protect the cornea as it heals. The doctor may prescribe some pain killers or antibiotics that should be taken as said.
