Phakic Intraocular Lens (IOL)

phakic iol, phakic intra-ocular lens, intraocular contact lensIn essence, phakic IOL is a procedure which places an artificial lens inside the eye. In this procedure, the living crystalline lens is left in place. It is performed under local anesthesia in a sterile operating room. Some feel that this is the safest approach for very high degrees of high myopia. This is because retinal detachment occurs at a higher rate when the crystalline lens is removed such as occurs in cataract surgery and refractive lens exchange.

Learn about LASIK and LASIK eye surgery as well as today's other exciting refractive surgery procedures designed to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses and contact lenses.
In addition to LASIK, the most important myopia,hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia refractive procedures are discussed here and more will be added as they are developed.
Please, go ahead and get started learning about LASIK and the other exciting technologies available right now. LASIK surgery and other refractive procedures are discussed.
