Phakic IOLS

Correct refractive errors and deliver exceptional vision with our selection of high-end phakic intraocular lenses (IOLs)

What are phakic IOLs used for?

A phakic IOL is a type of lens that is implanted into the eye to correct refractive errors in patients with myopia, hypermetropia, presbyopia and astigmatism. Unlike traditional IOLs, which are used to replace the eye’s natural lens, phakic IOLs are implanted in front of the natural lens.

A Greek term referring to the fact that the eye’s natural lens is still present, ‘phakic’ IOLs work by adding an extra lens to the eye, typically either between the cornea and the iris, or just behind the iris. This then allows light to focus onto the retina properly, helping correct refractive errors and improve vision. 

For this reason, phakic IOLs are also recommended as an alternative to laser refractive surgeries, such as LASIK, SMILE and surface laser treatments like PRK.
