Abstract Details


To evaluate the efficacy and safety of phakic posterior chamber implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) to correct myopia and myopic astigmatism after penetrating keratoplasty (PKP).


All surgeries were done in Yemen Magrabi Hospital.


In a retrospective interventional cases series, outcomes in 6 eyes that had penetrating keratoplasty of 6 patients, myopia from -3.00 to -7.00 diopters (D) and astigmatism from -0.50 to -6.00 were analysed after implantation of myopic ICLs (STAAR Surgical). Myopic ICL implantation was performed through a corneal incision in the steepest meridian.


No eye developed complication. No eyes lost lines of visual acuity. All eyes showed uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA) > 20/50.


Phakic intraocular Collamer lens is a viable treatment for myopia and myopic astigmatism after PKP. It reduced the refractive astigmatism and ametropia.
