What is Phakic IOL?

Phakic Intraocular Lenses (IOLs) are lenses surgically placed behind the cornea. Phakic IOLs are used as an alternative to LASIK for nearsighted patients with severe prescriptions or corneas that are too thin for LASIK. Phakic IOLs are placed inside the eye, without changing the cornea’s shape.

Is it safe?
While every surgery has its risks, Katzen Eye Group has never had a patient experience loss of or decrease in vision as a result of the Phakic IOL procedure. In fact, we’ve found that our happiest patients are often those who receive Phakic IOLs. In many cases, these patients have emerged from surgery with the ability to see at 90% or above.

Am I a Candidate?
Schedule a consult to speak to one of our doctors and learn more about this procedure and any risks associated with it.
