    Book details

Phakic IOLs (intraocular lenses) are surgically implanted lenses used for the permanent correction of common vision errors such as myopia (short-sightedness). These implants, which resemble contact lenses, are placed either between the cornea (the clear lens in front of the eye) and the iris (the coloured part of the eye), or just behind the iris. This second edition provides a comprehensive review of the technology and clinical indication of phakic IOLs, their contraindications, how to handle surgical complications and practical issues in their use in refractive surgery. Divided into two parts, the first section discusses the basic principles of refractive surgery with phakic IOLs and the second part examines their implantation including for astigmatism correction, combined and additive procedures and new trends.
