• Phakic lens in high myopes yields early refractive stability

    7 monthes ago - By Healio

    A 3-month prospective study carried out at a Chinese university showed safety, efficacy and stability of results with the implantation of a posterior chamber phakic ICL in highly myopic eyes.
    The Staar Surgical ICL V4c has a central hole that enhances aqueous humor circulation to avoid cataract formation and IOP increase with no need to perform peripheral iridotomy. The authors noted that there is a lack of data on the implantation of this lens in China, where high myopia is highly prevalent.
    In total, 67 eyes of 38 patients were implanted with the ICL V4c, 30 of them with the toric model. The
