Refractive Surgery with Phakic IOLs: Fundamentals and Clinical Practice

by Jorge L Alio, Juan Jose Pérez-Santonja

The book “Refractive Surgery with Phakic IOLs”discusses about the technique known as phakic intraocular lenses (IOLs), which helps in treating refractive defects. This book is divided into two parts and subdivided into five sections which include the basic principles of refractive surgery with phakic IOLs, implantation of phakic IOLs for myopia and hyperopia correction, implantation of phakic IOLs for astigmatism correction, combined and additive procedures with phakic IOLs, and new trends in refractive surgery with phakic IOLs. It explains about the types of phakic intraocular lenses used, the limitations of laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK), and comparison between LASIK and phakic IOLs. It also includes chapters that discusses about the power calculation for phakic IOLs, background and development of iris-fixated phakic IOLs, and the applications of Kelman Duet angle-supported phakic IOL, AcrySof® Cachet™ angle-supported phakic IOL, ICL posterior chamber phakic IOL and PRL-Carl Zeiss posterior chamber phakic refractive lens. Topics about the future aspect of phakic IOLs and newer lens designs that has to be brought into practise are also covered here.
