To describe the refractive outcomes of phakic posterior chamber ICL implantation.


Depatment of Cornea and Refractive Surgery, Institute of Ophthalmology, Mexico City, Mexico


Cohort study. All patients before 2005 were treated with spheric model. After 2005 received toric and spheric models as needed for correction of astigmatic error.


349 eyes with mean follow-up 47ḟ31 months (3 to 127). Mean age 29ḟ6.7 years. Paired t-test was used. Preoperative spherical equivalent -11.6ḟ5.12 D (+7.875 to -25.625), postoperative -0.52ḟ1.03 (+2.25 to -6.75) p<0.001. Preoperative UDVA 1.72ḟ0.49 (20/1050 Snellen), postoperative 0.23ḟ0.22 (20/34 Snellen) p<0.001. 7 eyes presented complications (2%), most solved favourably.


While complications can occur, ICL surgery is a safe and effective refractive procedure.
