Is Phakic Intraocular Lens Suitable for Everyone?

There are various treatment methods used to correct common eye defects. Phakic intraocular lens treatment is among these popular methods. However, as with every method, it should be said that there are certain limits in intraocular lens application. Unfortunately, it is not possible to choose this treatment for every patient. So who is Fakik intraocular lens suitable for? Let’s go into details on this subject.

Can Phakic Intraocular Lens Be Applied to Every Patient?

Phakic intraocular lens is generally preferred for patients between the ages of 20 and 45 who are not suitable for laser. Especially if the cornea of the person is not thick enough and this creates an obstacle for the laser, we see that intraocular lenses stand out as a choice.

However, it is not possible to apply intraocular lenses in every case. Again, as in laser treatment, the eye should be examined in detail. It is necessary to evaluate criteria such as whether there is enough space where the lens will be placed or whether the width is sufficient.

It is necessary to consult a specialist physician to evaluate all these criteria and to clearly determine the eye condition of the person. A complete eye test will be required to determine the suitability, and if the operation is decided, a study should be carried out to determine the lenses.

Specially selected lenses are prepared according to the condition and degree of the person’s eye. In the next stage, the operation is planned and the application is made according to these determinations.
